Nordstrom Rack is planning to open its second location in Manhattan this year. Debuting in fall 2017, the store will open a 46,500 square foot space off of 6th Avenue.
The new space will span over three levels at The Durst Organization. The flagship will serve as a second location for Nordstrom Rack in the metropolitan area. "Having a store near Herald Square – one of the most iconic shopping destinations in the world – is very exciting for us, and we look forward to offering visitors and residents of New York an additional location to shop with us,” Karen McKibbin, president of Nordstrom Rack, said in a statement. The off-price retail store will offer a selection of on-trend apparel and accessories at the new store.
The Seattle-based company hasn’t secured an official launch date, but will be opening the Manhattan store in the fall. The store will add to Nordstrom’s 349 operating locations in approximately 40 states. Out of those locations, 215 serve as Nordstrom Rack stores offering discounted prices of designer brands. Expanding its reach in Manhattan is one way for the retailer to branch out its local footprint in a luxury shopping area.
