NORDSTROM TO CLOSE MAINPLACE MALL STORE IN SANTA ANA IN MARCH
Seattle-based retailer Nordstrom has announced plans to close its MainPlace Mall store in Santa Ana, California. The store, which originally opened in 1987, the store will serve customers through Friday, March 17, 2017.
The closure impacts about 195 non-seasonal employees, although the company is planning to relocate those workers to one of the 18 Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack stores that currently serve Orange County and its environs.
“Southern California is one of our strongest markets and we’re continuing to invest in our growth there to ensure we’re offering customers a broad assortment of merchandise and a great shopping environment into the future,” said Jamie Nordstrom, president of stores for Nordstrom. “We’ve enjoyed taking care of customers at MainPlace for 29 years, but believe our other nearby locations will better serve them longer term. We’re looking forward to opening new stores at Century City and La Jolla this year, and we’re excited to unveil the most extensive remodel we have ever done at our South Coast Plaza store.”
