NORDSTROM TO RELOCATE OAK PARK LOCATION TO KANSAS CITY
Seattle-based retailer Nordstrom, Inc. has announced plans to relocate its Oak Park Mall store in Overland Park, Kansas, to Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri. The new, approximately 116,000-square-foot store is expected to open in 2021. Nordstrom will continue serving customers at its current location in Oak Park Mall until it relocates.
“We’ve been fortunate to be able to serve our customers in this market at Oak Park Mall for the past 20 years and look forward to offering them a new shopping experience at Country Club Plaza,” said Jamie Nordstrom, president of stores for Nordstrom. “Kansas City continues to be a terrific market for us. We want to grow our business here, which means we need to invest in bringing our customers the best we have to offer when it comes to both our digital capabilities and our physical locations. By building a new store, we’re excited to provide a new experience that makes shopping with us even more convenient.”
“The addition of a new Nordstrom store advances Taubman and Macerich’s promise to create a modern, point-of-difference experience on the Plaza,” added William S. Taubman, chief operating officer, Taubman Centers, Inc. “Exciting new retail and dining will ensure the district’s future success and that it remains the crown jewel of the market.”
Taubman Centers, Inc. and The Macerich Company jointly own and manage the 15-block, 1.3 million-square-foot, mixed-use retail and office property located in Kansas City.
Nordstrom’s Oak Park Mall store opened in 1998 and was the company’s first store in Kansas. Nordstrom currently operates 18 Nordstrom stores and 44 Nordstrom Rack stores in the Midwest.
