Friendship Heights to have Nordstrom Rack

Jun '10
Seattle-based Nordstrom Inc announced plans to open its first Nordstrom Rack in the District of Columbia at Friendship Heights. The new 41,000 square-foot store is scheduled to open during spring 2011 in Federal Realty's Friendship Center located at 5333 Wisconsin Avenue, NW.

Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc., and carries merchandise from Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com at 50-60% off original Nordstrom prices. Nordstrom Rack also offers a wide selection of apparel, accessories and shoes from many of the brands carried in Nordstrom stores and purchased specially for Nordstrom Rack, with most at savings of 30-70% off.

Friendship Center is conveniently located near the Chevy Chase / Maryland border, with easy access from the Friendship Heights Metro station. The new Rack will be part of a strong retail, dining and entertainment mix at Friendship Heights that includes Loehmann's, Borders Books & Music and Maggiano's Little Italy at the center, as well as Filene's Basement, T.J. Maxx, J. Crew, The Cheesecake Factory and AMC Theatres nearby. Federal Realty Investment Trust is the owner and manager of Friendship Center.

When it opens, the Friendship Center store will be the sixth Nordstrom Rack in the greater Washington D.C. metropolitan area. Nordstrom also operates four full-line stores in the area.

"We're thrilled about this opportunity to open our first Nordstrom Rack in the District," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "We're very fortunate to have lots of great customers in the Washington area and we hope we'll be able to better serve them at our Friendship Heights Rack."

"We're excited that Nordstrom Rack is coming to Friendship Center, a dynamic location in the heart of one of DC's bustling retail corridors," said Chris Weilminster, senior vice president of leasing for Federal Realty. "Nordstrom Rack provides a tremendous addition to Friendship Center and we think customers will appreciate their incredible selection of brand-name apparel, accessories and shoes for the entire family."
