Nordstrom Rack to expand in Minn.

Seattle Nordstrom plans to open a 34,000-sq.-ft. Nordstrom Rack, a unit of the company's off-price retail division, at Arbor Lakes, a Kimco Realty shopping center located in Maple Grove, Minn., in fall 2009.

This will be the retailer's second Nordstrom Rack in Minnesota with the first Rack located at the Mall of America, 28 miles away in Bloomington, Minn. The company operates one Nordstrom full-line store in Minnesota, which is also located at the Mall of America in Bloomington.
