SEATTLE, Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) announced today plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk® in New Orleans, Louisiana, a development of The Howard Hughes Corporation®. The approximately 35,000-square-foot store will be the first Nordstrom Rack in New Orleans and is scheduled to open in fall 2016.
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 to 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 Rack will anchor the south side of the new development, which opened in May, 2014. Other anchors for The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk include Neiman Marcus Last Call Studio, Forever 21 and Coach as well as several other first-to-market retailers. The center itself is located on the Mississippi River waterfront near the French Quarter and steps away from the Convention Center, Spanish Plaza, Canal Street and the Ferry Terminal as well as the Port of New Orleans cruise ship terminals.
"We have been looking for more opportunities to serve customers in Louisiana and we're excited to bring a Nordstrom Rack closer to home for customers in New Orleans," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk is an excellent location and we are thrilled to be a part of the retail mix."
The new store will be the third Nordstrom Rack in Louisiana following the Nordstrom Rack at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge which opened October 1, 2015 and the Nordstrom Rack at Ambassador Center in Lafayette which opens March 10, 2016.
"We are very pleased to be opening the first Nordstrom Rack in the city at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk, which will undoubtedly become a favorite among shoppers in New Orleans," said Mark Bulmash, Senior Vice President of Development for The Howard Hughes Corporation. "This addition further strengthens our position as the unrivaled shopping, dining and entertainment destination in the region attracting locals and visitors alike."
