Attention shoppers: Nordstrom bus trip endangered

Attention ladies of Oak Harbor, Coupeville and surrounding area!

We are about to lose a wonderful, carefree transportation and shopping opportunity to Seattle furnished by Nordstrom's three times a year for their anniversary and half yearly sales in June, July and November.

For $25 they have been sending a bus that can accommodate 40 persons to here to transport us for a day of shopping, serve us a buffet breakfast, provide a hospitality room where we can store our packages and enjoy refreshments throughout the day.

We used to fill three buses, but on the last trip in July there were only 10 people from Oak Harbor. Obviously, if there is no interest on our part they can't afford to continue this service. No other Seattle stores offer such a service.

We decided to write this letter in case people have forgotten or have never known about it.

For those who would like to join us on the next trip: Call Special Events Coordinator Kari Waldstrom at 1-206-628 -204 or her assistant Karen Gould at 1-206-628-1205. The next trip is in the planning for Nov. 9. Full particulars will be provided when you call. Hoping for a good turnout.

Mrs. Mary Suhy,

Mrs. Dorothy Trott

Oak Harbor
