SEATTLE, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc., (NYSE: JWN) announced today plans to open a new Nordstrom Rack at Easton Market in Columbus, Ohio. The approximately 35,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open fall 2013.
Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc., carrying on-trend merchandise from Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com at 50 to 60 percent off original Nordstrom prices. 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.
The new Nordstrom Rack will be located at Easton Market, an existing power center conveniently located next to Easton Town Center, the area's dominant super regional mall and home to the retailer's only Columbus-area full-line store. The new store will join anchor tenants Bed Bath & Beyond, DSW, Old Navy, TJMaxx and Ulta. Easton Market is owned and managed by DDR Corp.
The new location will be the retailer's first Rack store in market. "We've been serving customers in Columbus since 2001 and are thrilled to have the opportunity to add a Nordstrom Rack in such a terrific location at Easton Market," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack.
