Seattle-based Nordstrom Inc, a leading fashion specialty retailer, announced plans to open a 35,000-square-foot Nordstrom Rack at Millenia Crossing in Orlando, Fla. in spring 2009. This marks the first Nordstrom Rack in the Orlando area and the second in Florida.
"We think Millenia Crossing is an excellent location for a new Nordstrom Rack," said Scott Meden, president of Nordstrom Rack. "We're excited to be part of this great new center and to begin serving customers here."
"Nordstrom Rack will be a great fit with the area's already successful retail," said Chuck Taylor, senior vice president of Madison Marquette, the leasing consultant for the center.
Nordstrom Rack is the company's off-price retail division offering savings of 30 to 75 percent on apparel and accessories for women, men and children, including one of the most extensive collections of name-brand shoes available. Nordstrom Rack merchandise is made up of products from Nordstrom full-line stores and the company's online store at Nordstrom.com, as well as special purchase items.
Millenia Crossing is the latest retail development around Millenia Mall and is situated in a highly visible and well-trafficked location. The center is scheduled to open in 2009. It will be a premier open-air retail destination with a palm-tree-lined promenade and courtyard.
Shoppers at the 100,000 square-foot center will enjoy direct access to the adjacent Ikea and other retail areas. Developer, E.J. Plesko & Associates Inc, and leasing consultant, Madison Marquette, are currently reviewing retail and restaurant concepts for the center that will complement the new Nordstrom Rack.
