The idea of opening stores-within-stores isn't new, but it does seem to be "taking on more importance than in the past" as retailers look to maximize profits and make stores more enticing, said Arnold Aronson, partner and managing director of retail strategies at consulting firm Kurt Salmon.1


J. Crew wins big in its partnership with Nordstrom

Others, including Arnold Aronson, partner and managing director of retail strategies at Kurt Salmon, a management consulting firm, believe the two brands are compatible, so it's a win-win.
Moreover, this creates an opportunity for Nordstrom and J. Crew to walk the line of adding just enough fresh merchandise without "oversaturating the market," said Aronson. "Now [retailers] are backing off and creating much more intelligent assortments and making sure they get quality sales, not just quantity of sales," said Aronson, emphasizing the need for more items to leave the store at full price rather than at a discount. See also: 13 retailers that are not only surviving but thriving Beyond just adding stacks of cardigans and racks of dresses, this partnership is one that will get a lot of attention and could work well in the long run if handled strategically. "I don't think this is a one-time opportunistic marriage that they've made," Aronson said.
