Do Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items restock?

It's no secret that Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items sell out quick, especially hot items like their beauty exclusives. Throughout the anniversary sale, Nordstrom may restock certain styles and sizes, so we recommend keeping an eye out just in case something you love restocks. However, nothing is guaranteed. It's not uncommon to see a major restock once the sale ends. 

How often is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale only happens once a year usually during the middle of the summer. The sale lasts for almost a month for cardholders and just a little over two weeks for regular shoppers. And even thought Nordstrom has a ton of great sales throughout the rest of the year like Black Friday and 4th of July, the Anniversary Sale has exclusive deals you can only get during this special sale event.
