More than a year after it bought shopping website HauteLook, Nordstrom is considering another acquisition in the e-commerce space. Nordstrom doesn't have a history of making acquisitions, but Chief Financial Officer Mike Koppel told The Daily Deal that the high-end department store chain doesn't "claim to have all the answers when it comes to e-commerce."
