The Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. announced their plans to move and open its popular trendy store by spring 2023. The present location is the only Nordstrom Rack in the state of Alabama.

The addition of Norstrom Rack is another attractive retail store that can only be found at The Summit. 

“Nordstrom Rack is a welcomed addition to the best-in-class merchandising collection at The Summit,” said Lindsay Vetzner, vice president of anchor leasing for Bayer Properties. “Nordstrom Rack’s dedication to delivering a superior, modern customer experience aligns with our mission to create places people love to be and be seen.”


A quick Nordstrom Rack 101.

A part of the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc.,The Rack offers customers up to 70 percent off on-trend apparel, accessories, beauty, home and shoes from many of the top brands sold at Nordstrom stores. 

The Rack carries merchandise from Nordstrom stores and, as well as specially purchased items from many of the top brands sold at Nordstrom. The Rack is the number one largest source of new customers to Nordstrom and serves as a great introduction for new customers who may have never shopped at one of Nordstrom stores. 

For loyal customers of The Rack at River Ridge, the move is fortunately just a mile or two down the 280. Hopefully details about the relocation will be forthcoming soon from Nordstrom.
