Nordstrom Rack in Long Beach City Place to close

Long Beach, Calif. -- Nordstrom announced plans to close its Long Beach City Place Nordstrom Rack store in Long Beach, Calif. Originally opened in August 2002, the 33,000-sq.-ft. store will close to the public in late January 2014.

The company will continue to serve customers at three nearby Nordstrom Rack locations in Lakewood, South Bay and Edinger.

“The City Place Rack has been a part of the Nordstrom family for nearly 12 years and we value the hard work and efforts of our team there,” said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. “We still hope to do business in Long Beach in the future but with our lease set to expire and having opened three nearby locations in recent years, this is the right time to not renew our lease, close our store at that location and look to the future. Our hope is that eventually we can find another great location where we can better serve our customers.”
