Nordstrom Rack set to open Thursday
MILWAUKEE-- Before Seattle gave the world Starbucks, it gave us Nordstrom, an upscale department store that once meant a long drive for Wisconsinites, but not anymore.
The retailer will open a branch of the store's clearance center, Nordstrom Rack Thursday.
Officials allowed CBS 58 into the store for a sneak preview Tuesday. The store is more than 36,000 square feet of shoes, clothing, and accessories.
Before expanding operations in Wisconsin, shoppers in the Milwaukee area had to drive to the Chicago area to get their fix.
Employees spent the day making sure everything is ready for the grand opening. Festivities begin at 8 AM Thursday. Officials say there will be several raffle prizes including a drawing for a $1,000 shopping spree.
