News & Updates




NordstromRack.com | HauteLook (NRHL) SUPPLIERS PLEASE READ!

NRHL POs now have multiple "ship-to" locations on the same PO (orders written after 6/17/19 with a Not Before Date of 10/01/19 or after), do not pack orders until either the EDI or the PDF copy (non-EDI) of the PO is received. Never use an excel spreadsheet for packing and/or shipping to a DC/warehouse as the allocations may be wrong. Shipping against these can incur expense offset fees.


NRHL orders will have two locations on the same PO so always ship based on "ship-to" locations on your EDI or PDF PO (non-EDI):


  • EDI 850 SDQ Segment '0881'

  • EDI 856 N1*BY '0881' and N1*ST '0562'


  • EDI 850 SDQ Segment '0873'

  • EDI 856 n1*BY '0873' and N1*ST '0879'



Nordstrom Replenishment Suppliers: In June the Full Price division of Nordstrom (including Nordstrom stores, Nordstrom.com, Trunk Club and Canada) will begin a phased rollout, by division, of a new replenishment system.  This is the same system that is currently supporting our Off-Price business.  This change will impact ordering, allocation and reporting for all replenishment product our teams manage and will allow them to more effectively execute their roles.

Please Note:

  • Early and accurate access to item information in electronic catalogs (i.e. GSX | OpenText; InterTrade) will help minimize time to Purchase Order receipt.  It is highly recommended that catalogs be available a minimum of two weeks before product can be planned or commitments made

  • There is a minimum of six business days required to receive commitments on replenishment items after an item is set-up in Nordstrom's system

  •  Supplier Portal will not be impacted

  • Information will continue to be available at www.nordstromsupplier.com


Nordstrom.com Suppliers: Nordstrom.com POs going forward will no longer start with a '0'. While there will be residual POs with the leading '0', new POs will not.  Suppliers will need to read their SDQ segment on their EDI 850 and utilize the Store / DC List in Section 8 of the Routing Guide. 





Nordstrom has implemented phase 1 of our OpenText | GXS Active Intelligence (AI) portal.  This phase is all about validating EDI data.


This new tool monitors EDI documents being received from our trading partners as well as sends out email alerts when the data contains mapping / formatting issues (during phase 1 suppliers will not be going into the portal as they will only be receiving email notifications). It is important to read and act quickly to these email notifications, resubmitting data when necessary; if this is done prior to your shipment being received at our warehouses, errors could be caught before they become issues in our supply chain. Expense offset fees may still apply If it cannot be resubmitted, is not done timely for that order or there are additional discrepancies; however suppliers still need to take the opportunity to fix the issue(s) for future orders.  


We are happy to partner with our valued suppliers and OpenText |GXS to help improve product flow through our facilities with the added benefit of reducing or eliminating EDI expense offset fees.


Phase II will be expanding our portal service with deduction management for expense offset fees; phase II implementation will be announced at a later date.
