Nordstrom Rack to open at Northgate in November

July 9th, 2012 by master

Nordstrom has officially confirmed its plans to build a Nordstrom Rack in the space previously occupied by Toys ‘R’ Us at the south end of Northgate Mall, according to our news partners The Seattle Times.

It says the new store will open in November, and cover about 41,000 square feet. From the article:

“Northgate has been a special home to us for over 60 years, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to add a Nordstrom Rack in such a terrific location in our hometown,” Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack, said in a statement, referring to the full-line division’s long-time presence there.

Maple Leaf reader Stu, who told us about the initial plans from May, adds:

Old Northgate Theater demolished (complete), Thorton Place (complete), replacing ToyRUs (in November), a pedestrian bridge to NSCC (approved), just waiting for a Trader Joe’s and light rail and my master plan will be realized.
