Seattle — Nordstrom Rack will make its Philadelphia debut, opening an approximately 39,000-sq.-ft. store on Chestnut Street in fall 2014. The property is owned and managed by JEMB Realty Corp.

The new Nordstrom Rack will move into a completely renovated space that was originally home to department store Bonwit Teller and was most recently held by Daffy’s. The store will occupy the first three floors of the historic, eight-story building.

"We’re thrilled to be opening a Nordstrom Rack in this fantastic location on Chestnut Street," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "We intend to bring our very best — exciting fashion from brands our customers love at great prices — to make the most of this opportunity to serve customers at the heart of Center City."
