LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- It was a big turnout Thursday morning for the opening of a new store in St. Matthews.
Nordstrom Rack is finally open. More than 600 eager shoppers were lined up outside the store well before it opened. When the doors opened at 9 o'clock, there was a rush to get inside. Eager customers have been talking about the coming of Nordstrom Rack to Louisville for months.
The Seattle-based retailer is known for its handbags for women and its ties for men -- and lots of shoes. But Nordstrom Rack has just about everything you'd find in a typical department store -- women's, men's and children's clothing, jewelry, towels, luggage, you name it.
Thursday morning, Amanda Smith was first in line after arriving at the store about 5:30 a.m.
"I mean, it's nice quality, good deals on nice quality items," Smith said.
Nordstrom Rack sells brand-name merchandise from Nordstrom's regular stores at prices from 30 to 70 percent off. It says it can do that because the items there are clearance, closeouts, and end-of-the-season items.
