Nordstrom Rack To Relocate Honolulu Store At Ward Center To Ward Village Shops

SEATTLE, Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc., (NYSE: JWN) announced today plans to relocate its Honolulu Nordstrom Rack location to a larger space at Ward Village Shops within Ward Centers. The approximately 45,000-square-foot, two-level store is scheduled to open fall 2013. Ward Centers is wholly owned by The Howard Hughes Corporation (NYSE: HHC), based in Dallas, Texas.

The Ward Village Shops development is designed to continue the revitalization of Ward Centers, conveniently located in the heart of the Kaka'ako district and just minutes from Waikiki. The new Nordstrom Rack will relocate to Phase Two of Ward Village Shops along Auahi Street and will connect to a seven-level parking deck with over 700 stalls.

Nordstrom first began serving the Honolulu community in 1966 with shoe departments in Liberty House locations throughout the island. The retailer now operates a 200,000 square-foot full-line store at Ala Moana Center, just down the street from the current 34,000 square-foot Rack at Ward Center which opened in 2000. "We've been doing business in Honolulu for over 45 years and love serving this community," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "Ward Center has been a great home to us, and we're looking forward to relocating our store within the district to a larger space so that we can better serve the locals and tourists of Oahu."

"We are pleased to welcome Nordstrom Rack into this latest phase of Ward Village Shops as part of our ongoing expansion," said David Striph, senior vice president, Hawaii, The Howard Hughes Corporation. "The new store will increase their space, enabling them to create a terrific shopping environment for their loyal local shoppers as well as visitors who come to Ward Centers."
