Nordstrom Rack is the company’s off-price retail division, which offers clothing, accessories and shoes at 30 to 70 per cent off regular prices.
“We have been very fortunate to accommodate a number of retail firsts to the city at South Edmonton Common,” Tina Naqvi, president of Cameron Corporation, the real estate development company that owns South Edmonton Common.
“Given the considerable brand strength of Nordstrom, we are extremely pleased that they have chosen this location as part of their Canadian expansion plans, and we are excited to include them in that list.”
