Nordstrom Rack Could Have 300 Locations by 2020


Nordstrom Rack has been expanding rapidly this year, and the company has no plans of slowing down its pace of opening outlet stores, according to a WWD profile. The retailer wants to keep growing the number of Rack locations and admits that its long-awaited Manhattan store could be a tipping point for the brand as it attempts to reach $20 billion in sales by 2020.

Unsurprisingly, Nordstrom is investing heavily in the profitable stores and plans to have 300 locations open (there are currently 188 Nordstrom Rack stores) by 2020.
