Nordstrom Rack store to open in Wauwatosa

Seattle-based Nordstrom Inc. today announced that it plans to open a 36,000-square-foot Nordstrom Rack store in the proposed Mayfair Collection development in Wauwatosa.

Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom. Inc.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing Nordstrom Rack to (the) Milwaukee (area) and hope this new store will help us more conveniently serve our customers who have been making the drive to Chicago to visit us,” said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. “The Mayfair Collection is a terrific location and we’re looking forward to getting our doors open so that we can start serving the community.”

The store has long been a rumored tenant in the Mayfair Collection project.

Chicago-based HSA Commercial Real Estate plans to build Mayfair Collection, a 250,000-square-foot shopping center, in the Burleigh Triangle area east of U.S. Highway 45 and north of West Burleigh Street in Wauwatosa. The site was formerly occupied by Roundy’s and Kohl’s distribution centers.

Other tenants in the Mayfair Collection will include a Dick’s Sporting Goods store and an Ulta store, according to the Nordstrom announcement.

“Nordstrom Rack, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Ulta each represent the leading retailers in their respective categories, and we are going to continue to build on that best-in-class tenant mix with other lease commitments for the project to be announced soon,” said Timothy Blum, executive vice president with HSA Commercial Real Estate.
