TCM CONSTRUCTION: NORDSTROM RECEIVES AWARD FROM MINORITY VENDORS
 BLOOMINGTON, Minn., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordstrom Inc. (NASDAQ: NOBE), the Seattle-based fashion specialty retailer, was honored today by four minority vendors for committing $1.4 million in contracts to women and minorities, TCM Construction announced today. The vendors worked on the construction of Nordstrom's Mall of America store, scheduled to open Aug. 7.
 Don Crowther, president of TCM Construction Inc., presented the award to Bruce Nordstrom, Nordstrom co-chairman. "I praise Nordstrom for its efforts," Crowther said. "Without being asked to do so, Nordstrom voluntarily sought out women and minority subcontractors and suppliers. That's the kind of corporate responsibility we wish more companies would emulate." Crowther's company did millwork for the 240,000-square-foot store.
 "This is a tremendous honor for our company," said Mr. Nordstrom. "As we grow, we will continue our commitment to our minority vendor program. It makes good business sense to work with a highly qualified, diverse group of vendors." Nordstrom, which in 1989 implemented its minority-vendor program, last year awarded about $25 million in contracts to minority vendors.
 The other vendors who participated in the award ceremony are: Stan Gardner, president of Gardner Stone Co., whose company did plumbing work at the store; Patti Paraschuk, president of Wallboard Inc., whose company supplied drywall materials; and Ed Barber, president of Barber Northern Electric Supply Inc., whose company supplied materials for installing electricity.
 In total, about 20 minority vendors are participating in the store's construction. Seattle-based Robert E. Bayley Construction Inc. is the project's general contractor.
 Nordstrom, which has 69 stores in 10 states, reported earnings of $135.8 million and sales of $3.18 billion for the fiscal year ended Jan. 31, 1992.
