Now at Saks: Salt Rooms, a Bootcamp and a Peek at Retail’s Future - The New York Times
By DAVID GELLES AUG. 4, 2017

Venerable department store was dealing with the upheavals throttling the retail industry. As stores around the country reckon with Amazon.com, discount chains and changing consumer habits, they are turning to “experiential” offerings that entice people to enter their doors..... “Selling stuff in stores is not the answer,” he said. “You have to build an emotional connection with them. Where else can you take a fitness class and buy a Chanel handbag?”

It isn’t clear how many of Saks’s discerning clientele are actually interested in getting a lemon scrub after purchasing a $5,100 Alexander McQueen dress. During multiple visits over the past week, The Wellery was sparsely populated.

U.S. Retailers Learn to Speak Canadian - WSJ

High-profile stumbles are not lost on those still planning to enter. “We’ve been paying attention to every American retailer that moved into Canada,” said Ms. White of Nordstrom, which expects an approximate loss of $35 million in 2014 due to infrastructure and pre-opening costs.

After first announcing its intentions back in 2012, Nordstrom immediately called some its best Canadian customers. Hosting about 160 of those clients in Calgary, Ottawa, Vancouver and Toronto, the retailer treated them to hors d’oeuvres while seeking their feedback for a Canadian launch. “Bring us the full Nordstrom. Don’t bring us Nordstrom lite,” was the consistent message.

Mall makeover: A new retail fight heats up - The Globe and Mail
TARA PERKINS AND MARINA STRAUSS Jan. 28 2014,

"I said to him, 'Look, you're missing an amazing opportunity,' " Mr. Sullivan recalls. "'We have a mall [the Eaton Centre] that has 50 million people a year walk through it. We are going to announce that we've got a Nordstrom deal shortly. And you have a great store at the other end, the Bay, which you've done a terrific job re-engineering. Why don't you think about putting a Saks in as part of that?....Dramatic changes in the retail landscape are providing a wake-up call for mall landlords, prompting them to replace tired retailers with new ones and leading Cadillac Fairview to launch a makeover of its Eaton Centre. There has been an influx of savvy foreign retailers, and every mall wants to be the first to attract the next big brand that migrates to Canada....."The ultimate goal is to have the right mix of anchors and small shops such that you maximize traffic, you maximize sales, and everyone wins."
