Nordstrom Inc. is celebrating its customers and their stories through a holiday campaign that thanks them called ‘Love, Nordstrom.’ The company is using the marketing campaign as a stage for larger-than-life love notes to thank customers for the special relationship they share. The campaign debuted in the U.S. and Canada on November 1st.
With this year’s campaign, Nordstrom is prioritizing a pure holiday spirit and expressing gratitude to connect emotionally with its customers in a special way. More than 30 real Nordstrom customers were photographed in Los Angeles, Nashville and Seattle and are featured in the national campaign that was produced in partnership with creative agency Partners & Spade.
“This holiday, we want to remember and thank the people who are most special to us at Nordstrom – our customers,” said Nordstrom Vice President of Creative Projects Olivia Kim. “We reached out to our employees and asked them to share some of their favorite customer stories. We met with as many people as we could, asked them to bring along some of the things that make up their signature style and took photos of them. It was so fun to connect with our customers who make us who we are. The result was our Love, Nordstrom campaign.”
The integrated campaign components include digital, print, out of home, in-store window displays, shopping bags and coffee sleeves. There will be a ‘Love, Nordstrom’ navigation tab on Nordstrom.com. In an effort to reach and thank every single Nordstrom customer, the campaign also includes a charming video of employees singing the song “Thank You for Being Friend” to let all customers know how much they are appreciated. The video will be posted on Nordstrom.com and on the retailer’s social and digital platforms.
WHERE THE GIFTS ARE
This holiday season, Nordstrom hopes to be a gift-giving destination that inspires customers at all price points. A few highlights include:
- Available now, the company is introducing Mini Boden inspired by Roald Dahl – an exclusive limited-edition collection for kids celebrating six stories including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and more.
- Starting November 18, Nordstrom VP of Creative Olivia Kim will curate ‘Love, Pop-In@Nordstrom,’ a colorful holiday selection of apparel, accessories and tech toys including everything from smart luggage to unisex casualwear, turntables to instant cameras, cozy candles to nail art supplies, and more.
- Starting November 25 in select stores, Nordstrom is launching shops with fresh gifting ideas such as Wit & Wonder (a one-stop shop for gifts with personality), The Trim Shop (featuring ornaments and decor), The Wonder Bar (for stocking stuffers), The Toy Shop (of course), Bow & Drape (for personalized gifts) and Gifts & Glam (for beauty).
Since 2010, Nordstrom has partnered each holiday season with its customers, New Balance and the nonprofit Shoes That Fit to give more than 90,000 pairs of new shoes to kids in need. This year, they’re hoping to give 20,000 more. From November 1 through December 24, when customers purchase a $10 giving card at any U.S. Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack, they’ll help Nordstrom provide a pair of new shoes to a local child in need.
