After waiting decades to expand into Manhattan, Nordstrom introduced a men’s store last year and will open a flagship store this fall. But it is already planning even more stores in the area. Nordstrom will open two small outposts in New York in September, one in the West Village and one on the Upper East Side. It will be part of the new Nordstrom Local chain.

The two smaller stores will not carry merchandise. Rather, they will be hubs for online pickups and returns, as well as services like tailoring and personal styling. Unlike the Nordstroms in American malls and the colossus the company is erecting in the middle of the city, the size of the new shops will be comparable to a Lululemon or a Dunkin’ Donuts.
