Seattle-based Nordstrom Inc. announced today plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at the Plaza at Jordan Creek in West Des Moines.

According to a release, the approximately 35,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in fall 2014. The Plaza at Jordan Creek, a new 325,000-square-foot retail development adjacent to Jordan Creek Town Center, is being co-developed by Hurd Real Estate Services Inc. and Signature Real Estate Services Inc.

Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom Inc., offering merchandise to customers from Nordstrom and Nordstrom.com at savings of 30-70 percent off regular prices. There are currently 141 Nordstrom Rack stores. 

"Customers have been asking us for some time to bring a Nordstrom Rack to Des Moines, and we're very happy to be able to respond with a store at the Plaza at Jordan Creek," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "We hope to offer something new to area shoppers by bringing them the brands they love at Nordstrom Rack prices."   

Although Nordstrom operates a distribution center in Cedar Rapids, Nordstrom Rack will be the company's first retail location in Iowa.
