I worked for a dept store in the UK and over 25% of theft was traced to employees, so there are probably staff stealing a gift certificate here and there so it doesnt look suspicious, then these are used to buy expensive items then return them. Nobody is going to notice one gift certificate missing out of the till until they do their counting at month-end, and by then there would have been at least 20 people using that till so it would be difficult to find who was stealing the gift certificates

From what I've heard it's because people can return items even if they've already worn them, Maybe people are just buying the products cheaper in another place and returning them at nordstroms?
