Nordstrom Rack to Open Outlet in Novi Next Year


Seattle-based Nordstrom Inc. today announced plans to open a Nordstrom Rack, a discount clothing store, at the West Oaks shopping center in Novi in fall 2016.

“We’re looking forward to being able to serve customers more conveniently with two ways to shop with Nordstrom when we open in Novi next year,” says Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. West Oaks shopping center is across Novi Road from Twelve Oaks Mall, where Nordstrom has operated a store since 2007.

The 33,000-square-feet Nordstrom Rack store will offer apparel, accessories, and shoes at 30 to 70 percent off regular prices. The store also will feature discounted merchandise from regular Nordstrom stores, as well as brands exclusively sold at Nordstrom Rack locations. There are 173 Nordstrom Rack locations across the U.S. and Canada.

Nordstrom Rack will join retailers such as Gander Mountain, DSW, HomeGoods, and Best Buy in the West Oaks shopping center. The property is owned and managed by Farmington Hills-based Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust.

Nordstrom Inc. was founded in 1901 in Seattle as a shoe store. There are 116 Nordstrom stores across the United States. The company also owns Trunk Club, a personalized clothing service.
