NORDSTROM: Customer doesn’t recall being asked about music

I just read the article (TNT, 1-28) about Juan Perez, the 27-year employee being let go as the pianist at the Tacoma Nordstrom. He has entertained many of us for many years. I always know when he is at the piano, and it lets me know I am at Nordstrom. The perfume sellers are now all that lets you know you are at this store.

I have watched people stop and just watch him play. Some of us have to slow down just to catch his eye and get one of his wonderful smiles.

I have had a Nordstrom card since 1984 and did not get the memo that asked me if I wanted something else to replace the piano at this store. Where did they get their information? The Seattle Nordstrom still has its pianist playing; isn’t Tacoma “classy” enough to enjoy Juan Perez and his music?

I hope there is some other business in Tacoma that still cares about beautiful music and a music icon to Tacoma residents.

I will miss Perez, and I hope Nordstrom misses me as well.
