SEATTLE, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc., (NYSE: JWN) announced today plans to open a Nordstrom Rack in Naples, FL at The Mercato. The approximately 30,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in 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.
Nordstrom operates nine full-line and eight Rack stores in Florida, including its location at Waterside Shops in Naples.
