SEATTLE, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc.

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.

"We're excited to have found this terrific location that will enable us to bring the Rack treasure hunt experience to our customers in the Sarasota- Bradenton metro area and throughout Sarasota County," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "We look forward to getting our doors open and serving customers at the Shoppes at University Town Center."

The new Rack store will occupy a former Circuit City space with direct access from University Parkway. Other stores within the center include Marshalls, Ross, and Pier 1 Imports, among others.
