nashville business journal also confirmed friday that nordstrom inc. is scouting nashville right now for one of its nordstorm rack stores. the retailer prefers to locate their discount off-shoot in close proximity to their full-line stores. they are searching for 30,000-40,000 square feet in the area. they typically seek out city power centers as opposed to shopping malls.
the number of rack stores are outpacing nordstrom’s full-line stores. they have already confirmed 15 new rack stores this year including birmgingham alabama in may 2013 and atlanta, georgia in the fall.
