American fashion brand Nordstrom launches in-store marketplace

In honor of the ongoing Black History Month, leading U.S.-based fashion retailer Nordstrom has announced the launch of an in-store marketplace with Black-Owned Brooklyn, a digital publication highlighting Black-owned, Brooklyn-based businesses as part of the company’s flagship New York (NYC) pop-up Center Stage platform.

Hosted by BlackOwned Brooklyn husband-and-wife team Tayo Giwa and Cynthia Gordy Giwa, the market brings together and showcases eight companies in apparel, food, housewares and self-care products. Through March 6, customers can explore, shop and get to know the people behind companies including Chen Burkett New York, Savant Studios, Modish Decor Pillows and Sarep + Rose, Nordstrom said in a press release.

“We’re proud to spotlight eight phenomenal black brands at the Center Stage at Nordstrom NYC,” said Cynthia Gordy Giwa, co-creator of Black-Owned Brooklyn. “Nordstrom’s commitment to equity and inclusion is commendable, and the pop-up market is an incredible opportunity for these companies to showcase their talents to a new audience.”

The pop-up represents the first time Black-Owned Brooklyn is hosting a market under its new brand, Jummy’s Picks by Black-Owned Brooklyn. Under the Jummy’s Picks brand, named after the Giwa’s eldest daughter, Black-Owned Brooklyn curates and promotes collections of high-quality local brands for a variety of retailers.
