Press Release from Nordstrom

SEATTLE, Feb. 13, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle-based fashion retailer Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) announced plans to open a new Nordstrom Rack in Manalapan Township, New Jersey in spring 2025.

"We look forward to being a part of the Manalapan Township community and serving our customers with an amazing offering of great brands at great prices," said Gemma Lionello, President of Nordstrom Rack Stores. "We're excited to grow our footprint in the region and introduce new customers to the Nordstrom experience."  

Lionello added that in this location "customers will be able to take advantage of our convenient services such as online order pick up from both Nordstrom.com and NordstromRack.com, and they can make returns easily."

The 26,000-square-foot store will be located in Manalapan Commons, a popular shopping center that includes Best Buy, Panera Bread, Five Below, PetSmart and Raymour & Flanigan. Manalapan Commons is owned and managed by Urban Edge Properties and is ideally located off of Route 9 and Craig Road.

"Nordstrom Rack brings fashion to this center for the first time, broadening its appeal to the surrounding community," said Leigh Lyons, SVP of Leasing for Urban Edge. "We received interest from several large tenants before deciding to proceed with Nordstrom, supporting our view that Manalapan Commons as is a prime retail location in the trade area."

Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc. and plays a critical role in the company's Closer to You strategy, which focuses on delivering customers a more convenient and interconnected experience across its stores and digital platforms. Nordstrom Rack offers customers up to 70 percent off on-trend apparel, accessories, beauty, home and shoes from many of the top brands sold at Nordstrom stores as well as core services like online order pickup for Nordstrom.com and NordstromRack.com, easy returns and alterations at select stores. Nordstrom Rack is the largest source of new customers to Nordstrom.

With the addition of this new location, Nordstrom expands its physical footprint and economic impact in New Jersey. The company operates four Nordstrom stores and nine Nordstrom Rack stores in New Jersey, generating more than 1,500 jobs statewide.
