Specialty retailer Nordstrom forays in Hawaii

Feb '06
Leading fashion specialty retailer Nordstrom Inc officially broke ground on its first Full-Line Store in Hawaii at the groundbreaking and blessing ceremony for the Ala Moana Center expansion project.

The three-level store will be approximately 200,000 square feet and is scheduled to open in the spring of 2008.

"They've had the privilege of serving this community for the past 39 years," said Pete Nordstrom, president of Nordstrom Full-Line Stores.

"They've wanted to open a Full-Line Store in Honolulu for a long time now and they look forward to offering their customers a wide selection of shoes, apparel and accessories.

They are grateful to their loyal island customers and employees who have been with us over the years."

"They are excited about moving forward with the center's expansion and new retail development," said Dwight Yoshimura, Vice President and senior General Manager, Ala Moana Center and General Growth Properties - Hawaii.

"Having Hawaii's first Nordstrom store as part of the expansion project, along with an additional 70,000 square feet of new stores, will provide an incredible shopping experience for their island residents and visitors, as well as great job opportunities for the community."

On hand for the official groundbreaking ceremony today were Honolulu Mayor Mufi Hanneman, Pete Nordstrom, president of Nordstrom Full-Line Stores and Bob Michaels, President of General Growth Properties Inc.
