Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. announced Tuesday that it will open one of its Nordstrom Rack discount stores in Dublin in the fall of 2015.
The new 35,000-square-foot store, being developed by Regency Centers Corporation, will be located in the Village at Dublin retail center Regency is developing. The Rack will be just three miles from the full service Nordstrom department store in the Stoneridge Shopping Center.
Last month, the Rack opened its newest East Bay location in the Sunvalley Shopping Center in Pleasant Hill, Calif., at Sunvalley Shopping Center. The company also operates Rack stores in San Leandro and Fremont.
"We've been thrilled with the customer response as we've continued to grow the Rack throughout the East Bay," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "We know our customers want great fashion at great prices. We are going to work hard to exceed their expectations at our new location in Dublin."
Nordstrom Rack will join other retailers, including Whole Foods Market, that have agreed to locate in the Village at Dublin, a new open air shopping center that will be built across from Hacienda Crossing at Hacienda Drive and Dublin Boulevard just off the I-580 interchange.
"The presence of Nordstrom Rack complements the exciting merchandising mix of Village at Dublin, which will offer a variety of emerging restaurants and first-class retailers," said Pete Knoedler, senior vice president of investments at Regency Centers. "Anchored by Whole Foods Market, the center meets the area's growing demand for specialty retailers and grocers and is well situated to serve Dublin and the surrounding Tri-Valley area, which has a very high daytime population."
Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc., offering customers a wide selection of apparel, accessories and shoes at savings of 30-70% off regular prices at full-service Nordstrom department stores.
The Rack carries merchandise from Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com, as well as specially purchased items from many of the top brands sold at Nordstrom.
The Village at Dublin will be a 152,500-square-foot center housing a mix of retailers and restaurants. Knoedler said the area has a daytime population of 112,778 with an average household income of more than $126,000.
