Natick Mall, Natick, Mass. (May 15, 2006) – Natick Mall and its parent company General Growth Properties, Inc., have announced that construction began today on the state’s first Nordstrom.  The Nordstrom at Natick Mall will co-anchor, along with Neiman Marcus’ first suburban store, the mall’s massive 550,000-square-foot expansion.  The new wing is set to open in September 2007. 

Nordstrom at Natick will be a two-level, 144,000 square-foot store, located in the mall’s expanded wing on land north of the existing mall along Speen Street.

Nordstrom will offer customers one of the most extensive selections of clothing, shoes and accessories for men, women and children.  The store will also house a restaurant and espresso bar.  As such, the exclusive retailer is an ideal fit for the mall’s expansion, which will feature 100 new luxury retailers, premium restaurants, and 215 luxury condominiums directly attached to the mall, making Natick the first multi-use environment of its kind in the nation.

“We are proud to offer such an elegant, exclusive store to shoppers in Massachusetts, and we’re eager to watch as its design and construction unfolds,” said Stephanie Gambino, marketing manager at Natick Mall.  “It is truly a thrilling step in Natick Mall’s transformation into a premier destination for shopping and entertainment,” she added.

Nordstrom, Inc. is one of the nation's leading fashion specialty retailers, with 156 US stores located in 27 states. Founded in 1901 as a shoe store in Seattle, today Nordstrom operates 99 Full-Line Stores, 49 Nordstrom Racks, five Façonnable boutiques, one freestanding shoe store and two clearance stores. Nordstrom also operates 34 Façonnable boutiques in Europe.  Additionally, Nordstrom serves customers through its online presence at www.nordstrom.com and through its catalogs. Nordstrom, Inc. is publicly traded on the NYSE under the symbol JWN.
