If those Nordstrom SAs can afford a bunch of bespoke suits I may consider a change in career...
The SAs here in Seattle/Bellevue have been nothing but friendly to me. I was looking at outerwear at a few of the different stores and asked up front if an item was going to be on sale after Christmas. One of the SAs checked and even offered to sell it to me at that price now (this was a week ago). I didn't feel as if they were pushy at all except I went mid-day on a weekday and it was fairly empty everywhere not just Nordys which meant I had every single SA ask me if I needed help. In the suiting section I even overheard one SA say to another "No, I already asked him if he needed help, leave him alone" when I was over looking at something.
The guy at the newly opened Brooks Bro Country store was FAR more obnoxious, every single time I stopped for a minute to look at something he'd magically pop up next to me and start telling me about the item. It got particularly irritating, but I understood as I was the only person in the store. Same goes for Neiman Marcus. Judging by SAs across the spectrum here, it seemed like there wasn't a whole lot of buying going on in the Seattle area.
