Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle-based
Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) announced today plans to open a
Nordstrom Rack at Lake Brandon Plaza in
Brandon, Fla. The approximately 32,700-square-foot store is scheduled to open in fall 2014. Lake
Brandon Plaza is owned and managed by
DDR Corp. (NYSE: DDR).
Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc., offering customers a wide selection of on-trend apparel, accessories and shoes at an everyday savings of 30-70 percent off regular prices. The Rack carries merchandise from Nordstrom stores and
Nordstrom.com and specially-purchased items from many of the top brands sold at Nordstrom. The Rack is designed to provide the ultimate treasure hunt to style-savvy customers.
When it opens, the Lake Brandon Plaza Nordstrom Rack will be the company's third location in the greater
Tampa area. Nordstrom has operated a full-line store at International Plaza since 2001. The first
Nordstrom Rack in
Tampa opened at Walters Crossing in 2010.
"Since 2010, customers in
Tampa have enjoyed shopping at the Rack and we hope our new store at Lake Brandon Plaza will help us more conveniently serve the many customers we are fortunate to have in west central
Florida," said Geevy Thomas, president of
Nordstrom Rack is located off Interstate 75. It will move into the space currently occupied by Babies "R" Us and join a strong surrounding retail scene. Nearby stores include Publix Super Market, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft, Kohl's and Sports Authority.
"The addition of
Nordstrom Rack greatly enhances the merchandising mix while simultaneously expanding the regional draw of Lake Brandon Plaza," said
Paul Freddo, senior executive vice president of leasing and development for DDR. "The Lake Brandon Plaza location will be the eighth
Nordstrom Rack store in our portfolio and we look forward to continued success and expansion with Nordstrom's off-price division."
