NORWALK, CT (WFSB) - Nordstrom is one of many stores that officially opened its doors to shoppers to introduce "The SoNo Collection" on Friday in Norwalk.
Eighty-two stores are opening at the new, upscale mall in Norwalk. Other stores like Bloomingdale's and Connecticut's first Amazon store will open in the coming weeks.
"I'm excited for the Amazon store. I saw one in Manhattan, so I'm really excited for the one here," said Allysa Barnett of Trumbull.
Those in the retail business said they are trying to cater to all sorts of shoppers.
"Meeting customers expectations and exceeding them is getting tougher every year. Customers have so many options and choices on how to shop," said Nordstrom President of Stores, Jamie Nordstrom.
As more people shift towards shopping online, the real estate company managing this new mall is putting the emphasis on art, culture, and community.
"It's all about how we build our space to meld with the community, to evolve, to be a different kind of space," said Matt Seebeck, Senior General Manager of "The SoNo Collection," managed by Brookfield Properties.
Shoppers are thrilled about the new stores coming, just in time for the busy holiday shopping season.
