SEATTLE, Sept. 6, 2019 /CNW/ -- Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) announced today plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at Willowbrook Shopping Centre in Langley, British Columbia, marking the seventh Nordstrom Rack location to open in Canada. The approximately 30,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in spring 2020. The property is managed by QuadReal Property Group. Nordstrom Rack was represented by Scott Lee of Jones Lang LaSalle Real Estate Services, Inc.
"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 new store at Willowbrook Shopping Centre is 45 minutes southeast of Vancouver in the heart of Fraser Valley, one of the fastest growing regions in Vancouver's Lower Mainland. Located at 19705 Fraser Highway in Langley, Willowbrook is easily accessible from a number of major traffic arteries. Willowbrook anchors one of the largest, most dynamic, retail nodes in the province, comprising more than 2.5 million square feet.
Today, there are six Rack stores and six full line locations in Canada. The 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.
