What are the hours and when should I call?

Nordstrom operates the call center for this 888-282-6060 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Friday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 248 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Nordstrom phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Nordstrom staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Nordstrom is Friday. The most busy day to call is Thursday, which averages 113% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 248 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

Calling this Nordstrom Customer Number

Calling this number proved very effective, as I was able to get assistance almost immediately. When trying to call store numbers, it's never certain if the number will be a helpful one that offers assistance at almost all times or an ineffective option. This is a mix between the two, as it isn't likely to provide much help after hours. But during regular hours, getting assistance is simple.

When I called, I was taken first to the main automated menu, where I was asked if I was calling about a Nordstrom account or the Nordy club. If so, I was to press 1 immediately; if not, I was asked to wait for the next person to assist me. I chose to wait and spent less than a minute waiting before someone answered my call.

Upon their introduction, I told her that I wanted to find out how long after purchasing an item from Nordstrom I would have to be able to return it. She asked if I had bought at a Nordstrom brick-and-mortar store or online, and whether I had bought from Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack. I told her the item in question was bought at Nordstrom Rack online, and she said that I would have a minimum of 40 business days in which to return it.

After doing a quick bit of math, I noted that would be eight standard work weeks, and asked the representative to confirm that was accurate. She did so, and added that would be the shortest window in which to return an item. She then said that even after the window, I could still return the item for a lower amount of credit, before asking if I had other questions and ending the call when I didn't.

I was impressed with the ease of getting an answer, both in terms of wait time and in terms of my questions being fully answered. Based on this, I would absolutely use this number again for Nordstrom assistance.

Why Customers Call Nordstrom

If you have time to do a bit of reading before you call Nordstrom, we recommend you read over some of our problem-specific articles.

What is Nordstrom's price adjustment policy?

Nordstrom's price adjustment policy allows customers to request a refund if the price of an item purchased online or in-store is reduced within 14 days of the original purchase date. To be eligible for a price adjustment, the item must be in stock and identical to the one originally purchased. This policy applies to regular and sale-priced merchandise, allowing customers to take advantage of better prices even after making a purchase. However, price adjustments are not permitted during special events or promotions like Black Friday. The refund for the difference will be issued back to the original form of payment or as a store credit if preferred. Nordstrom's price adjustment policy demonstrates their commitment to providing value and ensuring customer satisfaction.

Does Nordstrom Pay for Shipping on Returns or Exchanges?

If you want to return an item to Nordstrom, you can do so by requesting a return online. You'll then receive a prepaid postage label, which you can use to return your item. You should hear back from Nordstrom and receive your refund within ten to fourteen days. $5.95 will be deducted from your refund to cover the return postage.

More Nordstrom Customer Service Contacts

There are of course other ways to contact Nordstrom customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.

Nordstrom Customer Service Live Chat

If phone-based customer service is not available, or the wait times are long, many people prefer chat as a next-best option. Some even prefer it to calling on the phone. Luckily, Nordstrom provides this option.

Nordstrom Customer Email Addresses

contact@nordstrom.com - Customer Service
Customer service email address
Corresponding with a customer service department by email may not be your first choice, especially if your issue is urgent or time-sensitive. But email is a nearly ubiquitous form of communication, and Nordstrom will reply our your email.

Nordstrom Customer Service on X (formerly Twitter)

@Nordstrom - Customer Service
Company dedicated customer service Twitter handle
Nordstrom, like many companies, provides customer service on the X platform (formerly Twitter). While it rarely entails live dialogue with a customer service rep, this channel can yield rapid response times and can be a useful option if you have an X/Twitter account.

Nordstrom Customer Service on Facebook / Messenger

Some customer service teams, like that of Nordstrom, accept inquiries through Facebook Messenger. This is a good option if you have a Facebook account, and you may even be able to converse live with an agent this way.

Nordstrom Customer Help Desk / Web Support

shop.nordstrom.com - Customer Service
Online customer service support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Nordstrom customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
