CALGARY – A well-known American retailer opening in Calgary this fall is looking to hire 400 employees.

Nordstrom will open its first Calgary location at Chinook Centre in September.

Officials say they will begin posting hundreds of sales positions on their website, and will start interviewing possible employees as early as Friday.

It’s a historic time for Nordstrom as we prepare to open our very first store in Canada,” says Shelia Wooldridge, store manager for Nordstrom Chinook Centre.

Founded in 1901 as a shoe store in Seattle, today Nordstrom operates 270 stores in 36 states.

Positions are available in all areas of operations including sales in men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, designer, and various support positions in alterations, facilities, and loss prevention.

Additional positions are also available in the store’s restaurant and coffee bar.

The new store will open at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, September 19, 2014.
