Nordstrom Rack to open new store in Philadelphia
Oct '13
Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. announced plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at 1700 Chestnut St. in Philadelphia. The approximately 39,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in fall 2014. The property is owned and managed by JEMB Realty Corporation.

Located across from The Shops at Liberty Place, 1700 Chestnut St. is surrounded by a strong mix of fashion and specialty retailers. 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."

"JEMB Realty is excited to welcome Nordstrom Rack to the retail portion of 1700 Chestnut St.," said Morris B. Jerome, Principal, JEMB Realty. "The addition of Nordstrom Rack to 17th and Chestnut will further enhance an already vibrant neighborhood and help it become one of the best retail corridors in downtown Philadelphia."
