North Spokane residents who are disappointed that the Nordstrom Rack store moved last month from NorthTown to Spokane Valley Mall can now do their Rack-shopping online.
Last month, the Seattle retailer launched an online section to Nordstrom.com that features some of the items sold at its off-price, discount Rack store.
Nordstrom has been opening new Rack stores around the country, including one not long ago in the middle of Manhattan. The online expansion is a sign that the company realizes many of its customers are more mindful than ever of the option of shopping for price.
The company now has 86 Rack stores in 23 states. In its SEC documents, the company has noted that, while monthly sales at Nordstrom stores declined from mid-2008 to late 2009, the Rack division has posted growth in the low- to mid-single digits.
