Work has commenced on the former Filene’s Basement location next to Marshall’s at 1400 Northern Boulevard. The building will showcase Nordstrom’s Rack, opening in spring 2014.
“Manhasset is the perfect location for our new store,” Chris Johnson of Nordstrom’s publicity department states. “Nordstrom’s Rack will offer the discerning client the power of Nordstrom’s at a good value.”
Other off-price retailers, notably Daffy’s and Filene’s Basement, have recently closed Manhasset locations. Nordstrom Rack is expanding with gusto, with plans to increase stores across the United States from 127 to 230 by 2016. Nordstrom will combine its signature service levels with technology, equipping Rack sales associates with iPod Touch devices designed to handle sales on the spot. The goal is to slash wait time.
In the meantime, construction is progressing and part of the parking lot behind the location has been cordoned off from traffic while the building is once again transformed back to life.
