Nordstrom News

Nordstrom is coming to the Ross Park Mall in the North Hills -- in 2008. That's more than 2 years away, so any celebrating right now is clearly premature. Stilll, in case you want to get a head start on your list of "10 Reasons Why Nordstrom is Good for Pittsburgh," here are a few to work with:

4. Now, everyone in Pittsburgh can have shoes that are as nice as the shoes in Seattle . . . and San Francisco . . . and Providence . . . and St. Louis, where Nordstrom already does business.

3. Pittsburgh is too as nice as Cleveland . . . where Nordstrom already does business.

2. People who live in the South Hills will have to learn to cross a river.

1. Two words: display ads. Department stores advertise in local papers, and that means ad revenue for the Post-Gazette and the Tribune-Review, assuming that one or both of them are still in business in 2008. More ad revenue means a bigger news hole, which means -- in theory -- a better newspaper.
