Nordstrom Rack to Open First Delaware Store
Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. announced plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at Christiana Fashion Center in Newark, Del. The approximately 35,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in fall 2015. Christiana Fashion Center is owned and operated by Allied Retail Properties.
Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc., offering customers a wide selection of on-trend apparel, accessories and shoes at an everyday savings of 30-70 percent off regular prices. The Rack carries merchandise from Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com, as well as specially-purchased items from many of the top brands sold at Nordstrom. The Rack is designed to provide the ultimate treasure hunt to style-savvy customers.
Nordstrom first came to Delaware in 2011 with its full-line store in Newark at The Christiana Mall. The Christiana Fashion Center Nordstrom Rack will be the company's first Rack location. The single-level, newly builtNordstrom Rackwill be located at the intersection of Interstate 95 and Route 1, adjacent to Christiana Mall and will be surrounded by a strong tenant mix.
"We have been looking for ways to better serve customers in Delaware and we're thrilled with the opportunity to open a Nordstrom Rack near our full-line location at the Christiana Mall," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "Many of our best Racks are across the street from our full-line stores and we know our customers like the convenience of shopping both."
"We're excited to bring many new retailers to the Christiana Fashion Center line-up that will add to the existing Delaware tax-free shopping experience," said James H. Oeste, vice president of real estate at Allied Retail Properties. "We welcome Nordstrom Rack as being the first of many fine retailers to come."
