Nordstrom RackOff-price retailer Nordstrom Rack will open its first New Orleans store in fall 2016 at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk.

The approximately 35,000-square-foot store will anchor the south side of the development, which opened in May 2014. Other anchors for The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk include Neiman Marcus Last Call Studio, Forever 21 and Coach.
