Nordstrom Rack to open in British Columbia in 2020
today Sep 9, 2019
The approximately 30,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in spring 2020, at the Willowbrook Shopping Centre, located 45 minutes southeast of Vancouver in the heart of Fraser Valley – a fast growing region in Vancouver's Lower Mainland.
"We're excited to continue growing our presence in Canada by opening a much-anticipated Nordstrom Rack location in Langley," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack.
"We've learned from our Canadian customers since our initial openings in 2018, and look forward to enhancing the customer experience with our latest service and experience touchpoints to best serve the Vancouver market."
The luxury retailer opened its first Canadian store in September of 2014, at CF Chinook Centre in Calgary, and today operates six full line locations, following openings in Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto.
Meanwhile, its first discount Rack store opened just last year in March 2018, at Vaughan Mills mall, north of Toronto, and has quickly opened a total of six locations since.
Its current Rack locations are located in: Toronto at Vaughan Mills and One Bloor; Calgary at Deerfoot Meadows; Ottawa at Ottawa Train Yards; Edmonton at South Edmonton Common; and Mississauga at Heartland Town Centre.
"We're proud to host the first Nordstrom Rack in British Columbia and deliver the kinds of retail experiences our customers are asking for at our newly renovated Willowbrook location," added Andy Clydesdale, Executive Vice President of Retail with QuadReal.
"Nordstrom Rack will no doubt be a destination for shoppers from all across Metro Vancouver."
Not long after Nordstrom entered the country, fellow luxury fashion retailer Saks Fifth Avenue followed suit, opening its first two Canadian stores in February 2016.
Since then, the infiltration of luxury retailers in notable Canadian cities, like Toronto and Vancouver, have been on the rise.
