When word spread that Nordstrom would depart downtown San Francisco, the Business Journal contacted the retailer. There were other inquiries to Nordstrom about the Portland location.
Grace Stearns, a spokeswoman for the company, said in an email that they were dedicated to servicing their clients in Portland and would welcome the opportunity to collaborate with local media outlets to spread the news that their downtown location would not be closing.
