Nordstrom Rack coming to Rookwood Pavilion

Tuesday’s Enquirer announced that Nordstrom Rack, a discount arm for Nordstrom, plans to open a store in September at Rookwood Pavilion in a former 35,000-square-foot Sofa Express. Mark F. Fallon with Jeffrey Anderson Real Estate called this a “big deal” because, he said, “You're not going to get many announcements of a store opening in this economy.”

Nordstrom Rack sells apparel that was for sale Nordstrom but usually at a significant discount. Interestingly, this Nordstrom Rack web page has a partial listing of their brands but also says this about merchandise they tag with “What’s in a Name?”:

Sometimes we can't come right out and tell you about the great brands and designers that we have. We'd love to, but our agreements with the manufacturers make that a big no-no. Then how do we talk about what we can't talk about?

When you see the 'What's in a Name?' signs at Nordstrom Rack, know that something extra-special is in store. Real designers and the hottest quality and luxury brands in the market—the ones you want to wear, the ones you want to be seen wearing. We may not be able to put their names in print, but we can tell you they're the best.
