I do not think people thought me serious when I said I was giving up Nordstrom. I’ve railed against them quite a bit lately and I think it is well deserved.
I finally figured out my channel in to their corporate office and after a casual email exchange, summarized my feedback as follows.
This note is about fashion and something very trivial in the grand scheme of things. I’m thankful for the life I’ve been given where this is something I have capacity to think about.
I think everyone should have the ability to demand more, this right to stand up , even when in the most dire circumstance – I hope for a day when those of the most need can say to their community, “I want to do more, help me” and the community responds with support.
This is a simple allegory though. All I have are my words and right now this is what they could do.
