Las Vegas Area Nordstrom Rack Relocating to Stephanie Street Center

SEATTLE, Oct 04, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) announced today plans to relocate its Henderson, Nev. Nordstrom Rack from Silverado Ranch Plaza to Stephanie Street Power Center. The relocated 35,000 square-foot store is expected to open in fall 2011.

Stephanie Street Power Center is located about a half mile from the Galleria at Sunset mall in the heart of the Henderson retail area. The relocated Nordstrom Rack will be slightly larger than the existing store. Nordstrom also believes the Stephanie Street location will offer customers greater convenience, improved accessibility and more shopping choices in the surrounding area than at its current location. The store will be located at the Northern end of the center near Barnes & Noble, and will join a retail mix that also includes OfficeMax, Pier 1 Imports, Michaels and Total Wine & More, among others. Harsch Investment Properties is the owner and manager of Stephanie Street Power Center.

"We love serving our Las Vegas area customers and hope this new location will make shopping with us more convenient for them," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "As our lease at Silverado Ranch Plaza was expiring, we wanted to find a location that would help us better serve more customers in this important area. We think Stephanie Street Power Center is a great fit."

"Stephanie Street Power Center is a premier lifestyle shopping center in Henderson," said Jordan Schnitzer, president of Harsch Investment Properties. "We're excited about the great brand-name fashion at fantastic savings that Nordstrom Rack will bring to our center. Their addition will help make an already strong retail mix at Stephanie Street Power Center even better."
