Nordstrom Rack will open its planned store in Columbia today at 9 a.m.
The discount format of upscale department store Nordstrom Inc. celebrates the opening of a 41,000-square-foot space with "Rally at the Rack." The retailer promises music, breakfast treats and gift card prizes. When the store opens, the first 1,000 shoppers to buy something will get a free tote bag. (While supplies last.)
The Columbia store, in the former Room Store space, will be the fourth Rack in the state, joining others in Annapolis, Gaithersburg and Towson. Nordstrom has Maryland stores in Columbia, Towson, Bethesda and Annapolis.
Nordstrom Rack has been busy with new store openings, with three in April, including one in Washington D.C., and two others today, including stores in Alabama and Maine.
