Nordstrom opens Rack store in Back Bay area
Boston -- CBRE/Grossman Retail Advisors said that Nordstrom will open a new Nordstrom Rack at The Newbry in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, further expanding its presence in the Boston market to four full-line stores and four Nordstrom Racks.
The approximately 38,000-sq.-ft., two-level store is scheduled to open spring 2013.
The Newbry is an urban project on Boylston Street; the new Nordstrom Rack will be located in the former Filene’s Basement space and joins co-tenants Boston Sports Club, Citigroup, H&M and Victoria’s Secret.
The Newbry is owned by TIAA-CREF and managed by CBRE/New England Partners.
“We want to be a part of the very best retail locations and The Newbry is a terrific center that serves the residents of downtown Boston, commuters and tourists,” said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack.
This newest Boston Rack also reflects the retailer’s strategy to increase speed and convenience to improve the customer experience. Nordstrom Rack plans to further its use of technology with the recent introduction of mobile check-out devices in all of its existing Boston locations and will open with these new capabilities in Bay Back as well.
