Jacksonville, Fla., is a diverse city full of great attractions both big and small. However, it’s not just what you can do but what you can buy that’s bringing visitors to this sprawling metropolis. In fact, shopping recently took home first place on reasons why folks are making their way to the First Coast.
Why shopping? Large retailers, including household and luxury brands, are finding success, as savvy shoppers seek out that special find from names they trust – names like Nordstrom department store, who recently unveiled their Jacksonville location as part of the popular St. John’s Town Center’s phase three branch.

Nordstrom Jacksonville is planted on the south end of the St. John’s Town Center, a large outdoor shopping destination with everything from Target to Tiffany’s. The phase three branch of the town center is an enclosed pedestrian space, complete with relaxing water installations, chic seating spaces and plenty of room to safely roam around without being concerned about cars pulling in and out from the storefronts.
The Jacksonville Nordstrom is full of innovation and all new design elements, including a more open concept flooded with natural light. Visitors will be impressed with the roster of name brands the store boasts, like Tom Ford, Prada, Gucci, Kate Spade and Free People, among many others.
When you’re not exploring all the great finds, Nordstrom Jax also makes sure hunger doesn’t get you down with Bazille (a sit-down, bistro-style restaurant) and the EBar (an espresso bar with plenty of grab-and-go options).

Shoe tying classes, a playhouse and complimentary balloons are all a part of their children’s department, as well as a women’s lounge where mothers can feel comfortable nursing their little ones in a clean and comfortable environment.
