After more than 35 years as a cornerstone of the Westfield North County Mall in Escondido, Nordstrom closed its store this week. The upper crust style emporium helped anchor first the North County Fair and then Westfield mall. Nordstrom announced in May that it was closing 16 of its 116 Nordstroms in nine states. Nordstrom Racks are not being affected by the shutdowns. Photo courtesy Dolores Tapia.
