SEATTLE, 2017-Feb-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) announced today (Feb. 15, 2017 ) plans to open a Nordstrom Rack within The Shops at Canton Crossing in Baltimore, Maryland. The approximately 32,500-square-foot store is scheduled to open in spring 2019. The Shops at Canton Crossing is a 325,000 square foot retail shopping center located on 3501 Boston Street.
Nordstrom Rack joins more than thirty existing retailers and restaurants such as Target, Harris Teeter, DSW, Ann Taylor Loft, Old Navy and ULTA. The store opening will coincide with the completion of the Phase II section of The Shops at Canton Crossing, a 90,000 square foot addition that is expected to begin construction this November. The Shops at Canton Crossing fronts on Boston Street and is bordered by S. Baylis Street on the west and S. Haven Street to the east. The shopping center is located one-half mile from Boston Street Exit off Interstate 95.
“We look forward to adding a Nordstrom Rack at Canton Crossing – a more convenient location for customers who live and work closer to downtown,” said Karen McKibbin, president of Nordstrom Rack. “We’re excited to bring the great Rack brands our customers expect at great prices when we open our doors in 2019.”
The new store will be the sixth Nordstrom Rack in Maryland and first in Baltimore. Nordstrom also operates four full-line stores in the state, and began serving Maryland customers in 1991 with its store within Montgomery Mall in Bethesda.
“The Shops at Canton Crossing features more national retailers than any other shopping center venue in Baltimore City, and the addition of Nordstrom Rack will provide downtown residents, employees and visitors another highly-respected and recognized brand,” explained Mark Sapperstein of 28 Walker Development. “The shopping center has succeeded by providing retail offerings that match the demographic profile of new City residents, and shifting shopping habits that previously drew consumers to suburban-area malls and centers. Nordstrom Rack provides another powerful reason to visit The Shops at Canton Crossing and furthers our goal of creating an everyday shopping destination within Baltimore City’s eastern core.”
