Nordstrom has built a reputation for going the extra yard for customers. During its upcoming anniversary sale, the high-end department store, along with the owner of Northgate Mall, will literally be going a few extra yards for customers.

The two are partnering to extend by a few yards a valet service currently in place while the mall is building a parking deck where parking lots used to be.

The complimentary valet service, paid for by Northgate Mall owner Simon Property Group, currently has a drop-off and pick-up location in front of Mama Stortini’s and RAM Brewery on the west side of the mall.

During the anniversary sale, which runs July 14 through Aug. 7, Simon Property Group is also funding shuttle service between the valet station and Nordstrom’s entrance. Two stores — Mama Storini’s and Forever 21 — lie between the valet station and Nordstrom.

(Early access to the anniversary sale, for Nordstrom cardholders, runs July 14 through 21. The sale is open to the public July 22 through Aug. 7.)

Construction is currently ahead of schedule for the two-level, 673-space parking deck, which is expected to be open to the public in time for the holiday shopping season, according to Northgate Mall. The mall also said the structure will provide 140 more parking spaces than what was available there previously.
