Nordstroms price level? come on mug. ....

it's just an upper end department store not a full blown Louis Vuitton. I'm sure OKC has more than enough people to pay at "Nordstrom's price level". My goodness, countless many smaller and far less GDP cities have Nordstrom, sister city Tulsa has a Saks for christs sake (Saks is higher than Nordstrom btw).

and there are only 3 or 4 that perform at the highest price points, in order: Vancouver, Chicago, Seattle Bellevue. And even then it's mostly tourists (from China) that buy the most expensive things in the stores.

Im perfectly sure OKC could support a full blown Nordstrom, whether they want to invest/bring one - OAK may represent the best shot or perhaps a development downtown. I seriously doubt they will come to Penn or Quail, those days (mall expansion) are long gone. OKC could have had a chance at that offering incentives back B.A. (before Amazon - Yes, Amazon is Nordstrom's biggest competitor).

There honestly isn't much in Nordstrom higher priced than Dillards or some other mainstream store anyway. Nordstrom just tends to buy from higher quality vendors and their real high end market is those who want the customer experience not necessarily just the clothes. Speaking from a former Nordstrom Corporate employee (btw).

The Penn Square Dillards are among the nicest in the chain (both the womens and mens/home stores). They have some similar brands to Nordstrom. They are not Nordstrom, of course, but Dillards has a Creed perfume sales area, and it sells well (think $400/bottle EDPs). They are top of the line stores for OKC and for Dillards, as a whole. I think OKC could support a Nordstrom, just not sure there is an area they could go, unless JcPenney decides to close the Penn store (or Macys).

Not to be debbie downer here, but is anyone really THAT excited about this. I was hoping that they would push for a more national brand in such a promenade space. A crate and barrel here would have killed it. I guess if BC is gonna fork over the $$$ and invest in the space then it was probably hard to say no.

They had courted Restoration Hardware for one of their Gallery stores, but they couldn't make the deal work.

They were also looking hard at The Oak (you can see their building in some of the renderings - surprised nobody noticed it) and Chisholm Creek.

I suspect they won't be doing any more of these stores for a while.

I may not watch much television but has anybody heard the BC Clark jingle yet this year?

Several times on the radio and twice on TV.

I have some far flung family and now with YouTube they can hear it any time they wish.

There are tons of YouTube videos of the BC Clark jingle, including one of the history of BC Clark, the person, and the history of the jingle commercial.

Here is one that always makes me smile, Actress Megan Mullally on the Tonight Show singing it.

I noticed it in both renderings, in Chisholm Creek by the hotel. Also the Trader Joe’s, Eatzi’s and True Foods Kitchen. None of which have come to fruition unfortunately. Do you know if any of them are in the works??

Everything is on hold for the foreseeable future.

Hopefully by this summer we'll see some of these project start to get back on track.

Women looking for engagement and wedding rings would be excited

I've been told their revenues have gone up significantly since moving to Classen Curve.

Certainly no surprise... It's a huge, gorgeous store with great visibility.

BC Clark is planning a significant renovation of its downtown store at 101 Park:

Keep in mind that Chisholm Creek frequently puts tenants into renderings just as conceptual plans.

They talk to everyone but we'd be first to report a done deal.

Hopefully this reno is the first in the recreation of the Park Avenue upscale retail district.
