SEATTLE,  March 8, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --  Seattle-based  Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE:
JWN) announced today plans to open a  Nordstrom Rack  at The Markets at Town
Center in  Jacksonville, Fla.  The approximately 35,000-square-foot store is
scheduled to open in fall 2013.   

Nordstrom Rack  is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc., carrying
on-trend merchandise from Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com at 50 to 60 percent
off original Nordstrom prices.  Nordstrom Rack  also offers a wide selection of
apparel, accessories and shoes from many of the brands carried in Nordstrom
stores. These items are purchased specially for  Nordstrom Rack, with most at
savings of 30 to 70 percent off.

The announcement follows recently announced plans to open a Nordstrom full-line
store at St. Johns Town Center in fall 2014. Nordstrom currently operates nine
full-line stores and eight Rack stores throughout  Florida.  

"We're fortunate to have lots of customers living throughout the First Coast
region and hope this new Rack store will make it more convenient for our 
Jacksonville  customers to shop both our Rack location and the neighboring
full-line store opening across the street next year," said Geevy Thomas,
president of  Nordstrom Rack.

The Markets at Town Center is an existing hybrid retail, dining, and
entertainment center conveniently located at Gate Parkway and Town Center
Parkway just off I-295 / J. Turner Butler Boulevard. In addition, the new 
Nordstrom Rack  will be located across from St. Johns Town Center where a new
Nordstrom full-line store will open in 2014. The new Rack store will be part of
the final phase to the center and will join a vibrant business, retail and
restaurant scene. Nearby stores include REI, Ulta, Best Buy, West Marine, Brio,
Black Finn, Whiskey River, Suite and a variety of boutiques.  

"We could not be more excited to be welcoming Nordstrom as our neighbor and 
Nordstrom Rack  to our incredible array of one of a kind merchants and
restaurateurs at The Markets at Town Center," said  Steven Cadranel, President
of Arris Realty Partners.  "Our vision and success for attracting the most
desired retailers and creating a truly unique shopping and dining experience for
all of northeast  Florida  continues to build on itself."
