SEATTLE, Jan. 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle-based fashion retailer Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) announced plans to open a new Nordstrom Rack in Fort Myers, Florida in fall 2024.
"We look forward to being a part of the Fort Myers community and serving our customers with an amazing offering of great brands at great prices," said Gemma Lionello, President of Nordstrom Rack Stores. "We're excited to grow our footprint in the region and introduce new customers to the Nordstrom experience."
Lionello added that in this location "customers will be able to take advantage of our convenient services such as online order pick up from both Nordstrom.com and NordstromRack.com, and they can make returns easily."
The 31,000-square-foot store will be located at Bell Tower, a landmark shopping, dining and entertainment destination centrally located in Fort Myers, Florida. Bell Tower is owned by Madison Marquette, a leading real estate investor and developer; leased by Colliers, a diversified professional services and investment management company; and managed by Avison Young, a full-service global commercial real estate firm that provides transaction, property and project management, financial and advisory services across all sectors to owners and occupiers.
"Bell Tower is incredibly pleased to welcome Nordstrom Rack to the Fort Myers community," says Jim Brennan, General Manager for the shopping center. "A strong complement to our already strong retail lineup, the addition of Nordstrom Rack illustrates to our valued shoppers that we listen to their requests, expertly blending brand-name retail with our distinct collection of restaurants, eateries and modern entertainment venues. By bringing sought-after retailers like Nordstrom Rack to the area, Bell Tower is continuing its 40-year tradition as an upscale, magnetic day-to-night destination and the perfect atmosphere for rediscovering the art of shopping."
