The 30,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in fall 2020 in time for the holiday season. The new store location will be part of the outdoor shopping and entertainment destination, which includes retailers like ULTA Beauty, Gap and LUSH Cosmetics, in addition to Marcus Theatres, a multiplex theater with stadium seating.
"We are thrilled to open our first Nordstrom Rack store in Tacoma, which will bridge the gap for customers in both Pierce County and Thurston County," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "This will be our southernmost store in the state of Washington serving customers in the Tacoma, Gig Harbor, Lakewood and surrounding communities. We've been operating a full line store in Tacoma since 1966, and we are excited to join a great retail environment in a convenient and accessible location. We look forward to offering our customers a wide range of on-trend apparel, accessories and shoes from great brands at great prices."
Nordstrom Rack began in the basement of a Nordstrom store in 1973. Since then, it has been a complement to Nordstrom full-line stores and a strong contributor to the Nordstrom brand, serving customers for more than 40 years.
