"They are excited to open a store at such a compelling shopping destination as the Waterside Shops," said Erik Nordstrom, executive vice president of full-line stores for Nordstrom.

"They feel that Nordstrom adds a dimension of retailing that complements their merchandising philosophy and adds a sophisticated level of shopping to the Naples marketplace," said Nathan Forbes, Managing Partner for the Forbes Company.
