Nordstrom Rack to Open Store at West Oaks in Novi


Nordstrom Rack, a discount designer retailer owned by Seattle-based Nordstrom Inc., will open a new location on Aug. 26 at the West Oaks shopping center in Novi.

Located at 43839 W. Oaks Dr., the new 33,000-square-foot store is across from Twelve Oaks Mall, where Nordstrom has operated a full-line department store since 2007.

“Many of our most successful (Nordstrom) Rack stores are located across the street from a Nordstrom store,” says Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. “We’re looking forward to being able to serve customers more conveniently with two ways to shop with Nordstrom when we open in Novi.”

The new location will carry merchandise from Nordstrom stores and, such as Free People skirts, J Brand jeans, Vince Camuto handbags, Calvin Klein suits, Ugg Australia bedding, and more.

The store, which will be owned and managed by Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust, a Farmington Hills-based real estate investment trust, will be open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Gander Mountain, Best Buy, Michael’s, HomeGoods, and DSW also occupy space in the West Oaks shopping center.

Founded in 1901, Nordstrom operates 299 stores in 38 states and Canada. The Novi location will be the fifth Nordstrom Rack in Michigan. The other locations are in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Orion Township, and Troy.
