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.
"We're excited to have the opportunity to open a Nordstrom Rack in South Portland," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack . "We've been looking for ways to better serve our customers living in Maine who have been making the drive to visit our Rack stores in Boston and look forward to taking care of them when we open this spring at Maine Crossing."
Maine Crossing is a 274,000-square-foot open-air shopping center with excellent accessibility off Interstate 95 and close proximity to Interstate 295. The new Nordstrom Rack will join a strong mix of tenants at Maine Crossing including Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, A.C. Moore and Men's Wearhouse. The new store will occupy the former Old Navy space.
