The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the ultimate sale to shop this summer

CNN —  

Summer’s ultimate sale has arrived. Today, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — Nordstrom’s biggest sale event of the year — kicks off with tons of sweet savings.

Unlike other seasonal sales, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale isn’t the retailer’s way of getting rid of old, unwanted inventory. According to the retailer, this promotion features “brand-new arrivals at super-sale prices.” That means, you won’t have to settle for worn-out styles of subpar brands. Instead, this is a chance to score brand new styles on back-to-school clothing, home goods, beauty products, shoes and more for the whole family — without breaking the bank.

Hurry and act fast because these markdowns are for a limited time. From now through Aug. 5, you can save on products from most every department, including men’s, women’s, kids, shoes, home and beauty. After that, prices go back up with no guarantee that they’ll go back on sale later.

Note: The prices below reflect the retailer’s listed prices at the time of publication.
