Nordstrom Inc announced it has signed a letter of intent with Turnberry Associates and the Simon Property Group Inc to open a new Nordstrom store at Aventura Mall in South Florida. Nordstrom will build a new, two-level store that will be approximately 167,000 square feet.
The store will be attached to existing space that will be renovated to include eight to 10 additional retailers. A parking deck will also be created adjacent to the new Nordstrom.
Nordstrom at Aventura Mall is scheduled to open in Fall 2007 and will be the retailer's third location in the Greater Miami/Fort Lauderdale area, and the eighth in Florida. The company will be opening a store at the Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens on March 10, 2006.
"Theya are always interested in being where our customers want us to be," said Erik Nordstrom, executive vice president of full-line stores for Nordstrom.
"They opened at The Village of Merrick Park in Coral Gables in 2002 and then at Dadeland Mall just last fall, and have received a positive response from the community. Aventura Mall offers the perfect spot to expand our presence in South Florida serving local residents and out-of-town visitors who love to shop."
Aventura Mall is centrally located in the heart of South Florida with more than 250 retail and specialty shops, a 24-screen movie theater and a variety of restaurants. Serving more than 20 million shoppers a year, Aventura Mall opened in 1983 and doubled its size to 2.4 million square feet in 1997.
