Nordstrom to Potentially Go Private

The apparel department store expects sluggish figures for 2024.




Nordstrom to Potentially Go Private

Management and members of the Nordstrom family are reportedly considering taking department store Nordstrom (Seattle) private amid sluggish sales, according to an exclusive report from Reuters. 

The members of the Nordstrom family are in contact with financial organizations Morgan Stanley and Centerview Partners to possibly take the company private. Nordstrom reportedly is looking to gauge the interest of private-equity partners. After this news was reported, the company’s share price increased 12 percent. 

Known for its array of apparel brands and as a staple in American malls, Nordstrom had a two percent increase in fourth quarter sales – a modest figure when compared to fourth quarter sales of previous years for the company. Earlier this month, CEO Erik Nordstrom said the company expects disappointing revenues for 2024 – with a final figure between just a 1 percent increase to a 2 percent decrease. 

Nordstrom and Morgan Stanley both declined a request for comment from Reuters.



This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
