Alaska cancer treatment centers team up with Nordstrom for special shopping event

In the midst of the holiday shopping bustle, Anchorage and Valley Radiation Therapy Centers is once again teaming up with Nordstrom for Retail Therapy, a special event and exclusive early store opening for the Alaska cancer community, on Sunday, Dec. 15, from 9 – 11 a.m. 

Following the success of AVRTC and Nordstrom’s 2011 shopping event, Retail Therapy is returning for a second year, sponsored by AVRTC, Nordstrom, Alaska Regional Hospital, American Cancer Society, Alaska Oncology and Hematology, PET/CT Center of Alaska, Alpine Urology and Bell’s Nursery. The retail store’s doors will open to cancer patients, caregivers, survivors and family and friends two hours before regular store hours for an exclusive shopping event featuring special demonstrations, entertainment and treats. Retail Therapy offers the cancer community a friendly and quiet shopping experience where shoppers can treat themselves or shop for their loved ones this holiday season. 

Shoppers will enjoy a complimentary breakfast bar and special demonstrations such as tie and scarf tying tutorials; men’s grooming demonstrations; prosthetic bra fitting; women’s skincare demonstrations; eyebrow tutorials; and an eyelash bar. The store will resume regular business for the public following Retail Therapy, at 11 a.m. Reservations are not required for the event and more information may be found online.
