Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc., announced plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at Columbia Crossing in Columbia, Md., a shopping center that is owned and operated by Kimco Realty Corp. The approximately 40,750-square-foot store is expected to open in spring 2013.

Nordstrom Rack also offers a wide selection of apparel, accessories and shoes from many of the brands carried in Nordstrom stores. These items are purchased specially for Nordstrom Rack , with most at savings of 30 to 70 percent off.

Nordstrom currently operates three Rack stores and four full-line stores in Maryland. "We're fortunate to have lots of customer living in Maryland and hope this new store will make it more convenient for our Columbia customers to shop both our full-line and Rack locations," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack .

Columbia Crossing is a 475,000 square-foot power center conveniently located off the Columbia-Jessup exit of Interstate 95, with excellent accessibility to Maryland Route 175, and just three miles east of where Nordstrom operates a full-line store at The Mall in Columbia. The new Nordstrom Rack will join a strong mix of tenants at Columbia Crossing including Target, TJMaxx, Dick's Sporting Goods and Old Navy. The new store will occupy the former Room Store space.

"We are confident that the opening of Nordstrom Rack at Columbia Crossing will be met with great enthusiasm," said Michael Pappagallo , executive vice president and chief operating officer of Kimco. "Our shoppers are always very excited when we add this upscale fashion retailer to the tenant mix at our centers, and we expect our tenth location with Nordstrom to be no exception."
