So this might be arriving just a touch late for back-to-school shopping, but loyal discount shoppers probably won't mind. An eagle-eyed tipster sent us the above photo for the Nordstrom Rack that's headed to The Shops at Skyview Center in Flushing with some very pertinent info: its opening date of Wednesday, September 10th.
Though details have yet to be confirmed, Nordstrom Rack usually goes all out to celebrate the opening of a new store. At the opening of their latest NYC location in Downtown Brooklyn, first-day shoppers had a chance to win gift cards valued at up to $1,000.
This location is the latest in a slew of openings in the area for the off-price retailer (whose main store, lest you forget, won't hit Manhattan until at least 2018). In addition to the Downtown Brooklyn store, another is opening at the Gateway Center in East New York this October, and a 34,000 square foot store will take up a chunk of the city's first outlet mall in late 2016.
Update: A previous version of this story stated the incorrect square footage for the outlet mall store. We apologize for the error.
