Guest Blogger Michael Stoler: Nordstrom Growing Their Presence in the Market
Michael Stoler

Over the past few years discount shoppers lost the opportunity to shop at Daffy ‘s, Syms, Loehmann’s and Filene’s to name a few. Nevertheless, bargain shoppers are still having the opportunity to claim a discount at other national retailers who are invading the Big Apple and the region.

Five years ago this month, Nordstrom Rack entered the New York City market with the opening at 60 East 14th Street in Union Square. On May 1st, the Rack entered the Brooklyn market with the opening of its store in the Offerman Building at 505 Fulton Street in the thriving Downtown Brooklyn. The company will be continuing its expansion in the fall when the off price retail division of Nordstrom will open its second location in Brooklyn at the Related Cos. Gateway Center near Spring Creek Park. Also in the fall, the Rack will open its first Queens location at the Shops at SkyView Center located in Flushing.
Last year, the Rack moved into a two floor, 32,000 square foot former location of Filene’s Basement in Manhasset, Long Island. The company also opened two other Long Island locations last year at the Huntington Shopping Center and at the Gallery at Westbury Plaza in addition to relocating a store in White Plains.
