Seattle -- Nordstrom announced that it plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at Gateway Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The approximately 33,000-sq.-ft. store is scheduled to open in fall 2014. Gateway Center is owned and managed by Related Companies.
When it opens, the Gateway Center Nordstrom Rack will be the company's second Brooklyn location. The first Brooklyn Rack is set to open on Fulton Street in spring 2014.
"We can't wait to open our Brooklyn stores in 2014," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "We know customers here have a lot of options and high expectations, and we intend to bring our very best — exciting fashion from the best brands at great prices — to earn their business."
Nordstrom last year announced plans to open its first New York City full-line store in 2018 at 225 West 57th Street, between Broadway and Seventh Avenue.
The company also has plans to open a Rack store in Manhasset, N.Y., in spring 2014. Nordstrom first came to the Tri-State Area in 1990, with the opening of its Garden State Plaza full-line store in Paramus, N.J. Nordstrom Rack has operated in New York City since 2010 at its Union Square location.
