SEATTLE, 2017-Feb-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) announced today (Feb. 1, 2017) plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at FIGat7th in Downtown Los Angeles, California. The approximately 27,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in fall 2017. FIGat7th is owned and operated by Brookfield Property Partners L.P.
The new Nordstrom Rack will join Target, H&M, Victoria’s Secret, MAC, an award-winning food hall and more. The center is located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles at 7th & Figueroa Street.

This will be the 12th Nordstrom Rack store in the Los Angeles area. The company also operates eight full line stores in the area and has been serving customers in the state since it first opened at South Coast Plaza in 1978.
“Nordstrom Rack is the ideal addition to FIGat7th’s premier tenant mix,” said Bert Dezzutti, executive vice president of the western region for Brookfield. “Their on-trend merchandise appeals to our entire customer base, solidifies FIGat7th as the one-stop shopping destination for downtown, and will encourage even more cross-shopping throughout the center.”
