Updated: Nordstrom Rack to open at The Parke shopping center


Nordstrom Rack will open a Cedar Park location by spring 2017 in The Parke, a new retail development at the southwest corner of East New Hope Drive and Toll 183A.

The store offers discount clothing and accessories for women and men from Nordstrom. The Cedar Park location will include 31,000 square feet, the company announced in a March 25 news release.

“Austin has been a great home for Nordstrom since 2003 and Nordstrom Rack since 2009,” Nordstrom Rack president Geevy Thomas said in the release. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to more conveniently serve customers … at a destination with such great retail.”

Two Nordstrom Rack stores are already open in the Austin area. The company also operates one Nordstrom store in Austin and plans to open a second store at The Domain on Sept. 30, according to the news release.

The Parke is located on 43 acres of land and upon construction completion, the property will include about 350,000 square feet of retail space. It is being developed by Endeavor Real Estate Group.

In November, Whole Foods Market announced it will open a Cedar Park location of a new store concept, called 365 by Whole Foods Market, as an anchor tenant for The Parke in 2017.
