Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. announced plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at Boulevard Consumer Square in Buffalo, N.Y. The approximately 35,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in fall 2015. The property is owned and managed by Benderson Development Company.
"It's important that we look for ways to serve our customers more conveniently and we're excited for the opportunity to open a Nordstrom Rack in the Buffalo community," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "This new store will give our upstate New York customers better access to brands carried at Nordstrom, at great prices."
Boulevard Consumer Square is located in the suburb of Amherst approximately eight miles northeast of downtown Buffalo. The new Rack store will join a great mix of retail and lifestyle tenants such as Target, Lowe's, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Barnes & Noble and Trader Joe's, among others.
"We are thrilled to welcome Nordstrom Rack to complement the impressive list of retailers and restaurants at Boulevard Consumer Square," said Randy Benderson, president of Benderson Development Company. "It is particularly exciting for us to be able to partner with Nordstrom Rack on its first store in Western New York. The Nordstrom name has an unparalleled reputation throughout the retail industry. The Rack store in Amherst will provide customers with unique fashion options and add another destination retailer to the community."
When it opens, the new Nordstrom Rack will be the seventh Rack store in New York. The sixth Rack opens at Manhasset Center on Long Island June 5. The company also operates two Nordstrom stores in White Plains at The Westchester and in Garden City at Roosevelt Field.
