Okay, I suppose that Nordstrom, being a private company has every right to say who can and cannot be in their store, so I have no right to complain. However, I was very offended by them last Friday and will not be shopping there again. I was with two friends and we went there to buy shoes for one of them. My friend Sean, a disabled Gulf War veteran, has a sign on the back of his coat that reads "Uncle Sam sent me to the Persian Gulf and all I got was this lousy syndrome"
Someone at the door, apparently a Nordstrom employee (though she had no nametag and would not identify herself), refused to let him in. She stated that no one with a sign was allowed in the store. This wasn't a sign, though, it was just something on the back of his jacket. Apparently, Nordstrom has decided decided that they don't want money from people who might offend their customer's delicate sense of propriety. That's okay, they won't be getting our money any more.
