Nordstrom introduces free shipping on in-store purchases

Seattle -- A report by Bloomberg said that Nordstrom Inc. will introduce an ongoing free shipping program for all purchases made at its department stores starting next week.

The program was unveiled just months after Nordstrom introduced standard free shipping and returns on its online orders. It was the first department store chain to do so.

The retailer best known for exemplary service is also currently testing same-day delivery of all online orders for a flat $10 charge. Nordstrom previously provided free shipping for store purchases of $25 or more, for out-of-stocks, for website orders that totaled $200 or more, and for occasional promotions.
