After months of anticipation, renovations, and media events, the doors to Nordstrom Ottawa were unofficially opened on Wednesday night for Nordstrom Rideau Centre Opening Gala. Over 1,800 peope — including frenzied shoppers, local philanthropists, fourth-generation Nordstrom family members, and new hires — filled the massive high end department store for an evening of drinks, bites, dancing, and shopping.

The event raised over $180,000 for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and United Way Ottawa. Click through the gallery to see glimpses from the bash>>
