The Nordstrom Rack is the company's off-price retail division that offers savings of 30 to 75 percent on apparel, accessories and gifts for men, women and children, including one of the most extensive collections of name-brand shoes available. Rack merchandise is made up of products from Nordstrom full- line stores and the company's online store at Nordstrom.com, as well as special purchase items.

The Park Lane Rack will be the retailer's third Rack store in Texas. Nordstrom also operates Rack stores at The Shops at Northeast Mall in Hurst and Preston Sheppard Place in Plano.

"We're thrilled at the opportunity to open an additional Rack store in Dallas," said Scott Meden, president of Nordstrom Rack. "The Nordstrom Rack at Park Lane is centrally located, hopefully making it a convenient shopping location for our customers."

"We are pleased to add Nordstrom Rack to our tenant mix," said Eliot Barnett, managing partner of Harvest Partners, the project developer. "With Park Lane's combination of unique shops and favorite consumer brands, we are confident that Nordstrom Rack will be a shopping destination enhancing the customer experience."
