Last week I woke up way too early and attended the Grand Opening of a Nordstrom Rack in the city of Orange. I cannot remember ever attending any store grand opening so I was hoping for some deals...
Apparently about 1,000 people had the same idea but, luckily my friend Liz and I were one of the first 375 crazies so we got to enter the store when it actually opened at 9am.
Moments before the doors were opened a name was drawn and this woman had 90 seconds to run through the store with a golden shopping cart and grab as much loot as possible BUT it could not exceed $2,000.
She grabbed like 7 purses, two pairs of shoes, some watches and a couple articles of clothing. There were also some golden hangers hidden in the store worth $100 but, none were found by me or Liz.
There were no great deals as a reward for our early morning and also no high end designer fashion at this store ( we know because we asked ).
But it was Nordstrom Rack and if you can't find a pair of shoes ( or 5 pairs ) that you like, well you just aren't looking hard enough :)
The not so grand opening was fun because I was with my friend but, next time I read about a grand opening I think I will just sleep in.
