Nordstrom, the global apparel giant, has not yet opened its doors to its staff for a second consecutive year.
It was last open on January 8, 2020.
In 2018, the company announced its first ever holiday season.
In 2017, the brand said it would open its Nordstrom stores in India in the second half of 2020, but in a statement, it did not say when.
However, it also said that the company would open the stores in the next quarter, and that it was committed to expanding its presence in India by 2020.
In 2016, the New York Times reported that Nordstrom’s decision to open its stores in several Indian cities during the festive season could be the first in the apparel industry to open in India.
Nordstrom declined to comment on the report.
The company’s India sales rose 22% in the year ending June 30, 2020 from the previous year, to $14.8 billion.
In 2020, the year that Nordstroners India operations were to be launched, its India sales grew 11% to $13.2 billion.
