Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. announced today plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at Fashion Outlets of Chicago in Rosemont, Illinois. The approximately 28,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in fall 2016. The property is owned by Macerich.
Nordstrom Rack will be joining Bloomingdale's The Outlet Store, Last Call by Neiman Marcus, Saks Off 5th and Forever 21, along with more than 130 designer outlets. The center is located northwest of downtown Chicago and less than two miles from O'Hare International Airport.

Stephens Convention Center, the airport, and many hotels, Fashion Outlets offers an opportunity to provide Rosemont area residents and visitors alike a more convenient way to shop Nordstrom Rack."
