Nordstrom Rack Plans Move to The Summit

by Pat Byington

The Nordstrom Rack River Ridge store on Highway 280 is relocating to The Summit.

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.

“Nordstrom Rack has served the Birmingham community since we first opened our doors here in 2013,” said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. “We are excited to move our store to The Summit and bring our customers access to the best brands at the best prices, in a newly designed space. We have been focused on offering a mix of quality brands that cater to different lifestyles, sizes and trends, to fit every customers’ style needs.”

According to the company, the size of the new location will be approximately 27,000-square-feet.

This is the second announcement this month about new retail and dining establishments coming to The Summit, one of Birmingham’s most dynamic shopping destinations. Earlier in January, we learned about four new concepts joining The Summit portfolio. They are:

  • Levi’s Strauss and Co.
  • LensCrafters
  • The Good Feet Store
  • Blue Sushi Sake Grill

The addition of Nordstrom 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 Nordstrom.com, 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.
