Nordstrom, which is building an East Coast fulfillment center in Lancaster County, has acquired the Trunk Club, a personal styling service for men.

A Chicago-based company, the 5-year-old Trunk Club offers a subscription-based service similar to having your own personal stylist. Top designer labels are matched with clients and shipped to their homes for free.

Men are interviewed to learn their tastes and additional information. Soon, their first "trunk" arrives full of selected clothing. Clients only pay for what they don't mail back within 10 days.

The company was founded by Brian Spaly, who recently told the New York Times the Truck Club is profitable, with revenues on track to double to $100 million in 2014.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

A Seattle-based specialty fashion retailer, Nordstrom is midway through its $79 million fulfillment center, which includes 369 jobs. The facility is expected to open in the summer of 2015 at the Conewago Industrial Park in West Donegal Township just outside Elizabethtown.

Construction of the 672,000-square-foot building — which includes an additional 470,000-square-foot mezzanine — will be handled by H&M Company Inc. of Jackson, Tenn.

This is the third fulfillment center for the company, which has said it will bring faster delivery for Nordstrom customers on the East Coast.
