Nordstrom Rack store opens Oct. 7 in Tampa


Nordstrom Rack store opens Oct. 7

The first Nordstrom Rack store in the Tampa Bay area opens Oct. 7. The 45,000-square-foot store is going into a vacant Circuit City storefront in Walter's Crossing at N Dale Mabry Highway and I-275 in Tampa. Nordstrom moved up the opening months ago when it cited the economy as a reason for shifting growth priorities to its outlet chain. Hiring for the 70 jobs is under way. Applications are accepted online at under "careers." Like most outlet chains, most of what's stocked at a Nordstrom Rack was made to be sold there. But up to a quarter are deeply discounted clearance items or production overruns from full-line Nord­strom stores. The recent opening of the first Nordstrom Rack in Manhattan was so crowded it required shoppers to stand in line to get in, but Manhattan has no full-line Nordstrom.
