By the time the doors opened on March 25 at 9a.m., the parking lot was full to overflowing and a line stretched halfway down the block with shoppers hoping to score bargains seldom seen at Nordstrom’s traditional shopping mall locations.
Nordstrom Rack carries merchandise from Nordstrom stores as well as their website at 50-60 percent off normal prices. An additional inventory of items purchased specifically for Nordstrom Rack is available with most products at a savings of 30-70 percent off.
Nordstrom opened its first Rack location in the basement of the downtown Seattle store in 1975 as a clearance department. Since that time, it has grown into its own division with 69 Nordstrom Rack locations in 21 states. Other Colorado locations include Park Meadows mall in Lone Tree, and Flatiron Crossing mall in Broomfield.
Nordstrom Rack is open Mon.-Sat., 10a.m.-9p.m., and Sun., 11a.m.-6p.m. For information, call 303-305-4380.
