Nordstrom to open discount Rack location at Train Yards

Upscale clothing retailer Nordstrom says it plans to open a Rack store in Ottawa that will offer lower-cost merchandise.

The Seattle-based retailer says the Nordstrom Rack location at the Ottawa Train Yards is scheduled to open in the fall of 2018.

The 35,000-square-foot store will offer discounted items from regular Nordstrom stores as well as products specially purchased for the Rack brand.

“It has been a pleasure getting to know customers in Ottawa since we opened our doors at Rideau Centre in 2015,” Nordstrom Canada president Karen McKibbin said in a release. “We’re excited to offer customers a new way to shop with Nordstrom and bring them more of the great brands they love at great prices.”

This will be the second Nordstrom location in Ottawa. The chain opened a regular store covering 157,000 square feet at the Rideau Centre in March 2015.
