SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordstrom today announced plans to close its MainPlace Mall store in Santa Ana, California. Originally opened in 1987, the store will serve customers through Friday, March 17, 2017.
"Southern California is one of our strongest markets and we're continuing to invest in our growth there to ensure we're offering customers a broad assortment of merchandise and a great shopping environment into the future," said Jamie Nordstrom, president of stores for Nordstrom. "We've enjoyed taking care of customers at MainPlace for 29 years, but believe our other nearby locations will better serve them longer term. We're looking forward to opening new stores at Century City and La Jolla this year, and we're excited to unveil the most extensive remodel we have ever done at our South Coast Plaza store."
The closure impacts about 195 non-seasonal employees. "Fortunately we have 18 nearby Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack stores, so we'll have a job for anyone who wants to stay with us," said Nordstrom. Employees who do not have a role at another store and remain until their last scheduled shift will receive a separation plan.
Nordstrom will continue to serve Orange County customers at six area Nordstrom locations: Nordstrom South Coast Plaza; Nordstrom Fashion Island; Nordstrom Irvine Spectrum Center; Nordstrom Brea Mall; Nordstrom Los Cerritos Center; Nordstrom The Shops at Mission Viejo.
Customers can also visit 12 Nordstrom Racks: Outlets at Orange; Nordstrom Rack Metro Pointe at South Coast; Nordstrom Rack Tustin Market Place; Nordstrom Rack Edinger Plaza; Nordstrom Rack Brea Union Plaza; Nordstrom Rack Laguna Hills Mall; Nordstrom Rack Marina Pacifica; Nordstrom Rack Plaza 183; Nordstrom Rack Lakewood Center; Nordstrom Rack Laguna Niguel; Nordstrom Rack Chino Spectrum Towne Center; and Nordstrom Rack West Covina Mall.
