Nordstrom to open first store in Queens

RBR Staff Writer Published 09 December 2013

American department store operator Nordstrom has signed a lease agreement to open the first Nordstrom Rack store in Flushing, Queens.

The new store will be opened at the Shops at SkyView Center, an 800,000ft² mall in Flushing.

Recently, the retailer also announced plans to open two Nordstrom Racks in Brooklyn and its first full-line store in New York on West 57th Street.

Nordstrom spokesperson told The Wall Street Journal that, "We see a lot of opportunity in New York City."

The company has also announced plans to open five stores in Canada beginning in 2014, as well as its first namesake in New York City in 2018.

Nordstrom is an upscale fashion retailer. It began as a shoe retailer, and has since expanded inventory to include clothing, accessories, handbags, jewelry, cosmetics, and fragrances. Select Nordstrom stores also have wedding and home furnishing departments.

There are 252 stores operating in 34 states, which includes 117 Full-Line stores and 132 Nordstrom Racks.
