SAN DIEGO, June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordstrom today announced plans to close its Horton Plaza Store in San Diego. Originally opened in 1985, the store will serve customers through August 26, 2016.
"We've been in business at Horton Plaza for 31 years and we've loved serving our customers here. These are always tough decisions to make, but in taking a look at the store's performance and our business needs into the future, we believe this is the best direction to take," said Jamie Nordstrom, president of stores for Nordstrom. "We look forward to serving our loyal Horton Plaza customers at our other San Diego stores. Fashion Valley is right down the road and we're excited that our University Town Centre store in La Jolla, where we've served customers since 1984, will relocate to a new space in the mall next year and re-open with our latest store design."
The closure impacts about 180 non-seasonal employees. "We've told our people that with opportunities at our nearby Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack stores, we will have a spot for everyone who wants to stay with the company," said Nordstrom. Employees who do not have a role at another store and remain until their last scheduled shift will be provided with a separation plan.
Nordstrom will continue to serve San Diego customers at three Nordstrom and four Nordstrom Rack locations in the area: Nordstrom University Town Centre (which will relocate to a new space in 2017); Nordstrom Fashion Valley; Nordstrom North County; Nordstrom Rack Mission Valley; Nordstrom Rack Carmel Mountain Plaza; Nordstrom Rack Plaza Bonita; and Nordstrom Rack Grand Plaza. The Nordstrom Rack at the Shops at La Jolla Village is scheduled to open in October 2016. The company also continues to serve customers online at nordstrom.com with free shipping and returns.
