NAPLES, FL, JANUARY 23, 2013 – Mercato announced today that Nordstrom Rack, the popular off-price division of Nordstrom, Inc., will join the center with an anticipated opening in Fall 2013. This announcement is just the latest in a flurry of activity at the center, which has secured 12 new tenants in the past year.
“We are thrilled to be adding yet another high-quality and hugely popular retailer to Mercato,” said Chuck Taylor, Senior Vice President for Madison Marquette Retail Services, which operates the center. “The addition of Nordstrom Rack further cements Mercato as one of the premiere retail destinations in the Naples area.”
Nordstrom Rack will occupy 30,000 square feet of space along US 41 that was previously occupied by Books-A-Million. The retailer will join several newly opened tenants including The Wine Loft, The Counter, MASA, Kelly Chase Couture and Mark Loren Designs as well as those slated to open during the first quarter of 2013, such as TAPS Bar & Lounge, Le Macaron, Salon Zen AVEDA and Second Cup.
