The new Nordstrom Rack at The Greene Town Center opened this morning to a cheering crowd.
The store, the first in the region, opened at 9 a.m. today, Sept. 10, with multiple promotions and giveaways planned.
The grand opening festivities started at 8 a.m. with music, breakfast treats and a raffle. Company representatives will raffle off 30 $100 Nordstrom Rack gift cards. In addition, one shopper will win a $1,000-dollar gift card and will be given the opportunity to shop inside the store before it opens to the public, Nordstrom officials said. That grand-prize “Rule the Rack” raffle will be awarded at about 8:25 a.m.
The first 1,000 customers who make a purchase at the new Nordstrom Rack will receive a complimentary Nordstrom Rack tote.
The 35,000-square-foot store at 33 Greene Blvd. will employ 45 to 50 people.
Nordstrom operates 271 stores in 36 states. Of those stores, 151 are Nordstrom Rack, which is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom Inc. and carries clearance merchandise from Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com as well as some merchandise purchased especially for Nordstrom Rack.
The Dayton-area location is Nordstrom Rack’s sixth in Ohio, including two that opened in fall 2013 in Columbus and Westlake.
