A new Nordstrom Rack location opens Friday in La Jolla Village and the grand opening party will include a raffle to win gift cards to the store.
The retail store opens at 9 a.m. at The Shops at La Jolla Village at 8875 Villa La Jolla Dr. Customers will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of 30 gift cards to Nordstrom Rack worth $100 each. One lucky winner – through a sweepstakes dubbed “Rule the Rack” – will win a $1,000 shopping spree to the store.
This La Jolla Village location is one of a handful of Nordstrom Rack stores in San Diego County. Other locations include Mission Valley, National City, Carmel Mountain and San Marcos.
This store takes over a site that formerly housed a closed-down movie theater and is part of a major revitalization project at The Shops at La Jolla Village that includes the opening of the Nordstrom Rack and other new retail and dining options. The shopping center is located in the heart of University City, between Nobel and La Jolla Village drives near UC San Diego and Interstate 5.
Nordstrom Rack, the off-price division of Nordstrom, Inc., sells brand-name shoes, clothing and accessories at a considerable savings of 30 to 70 percent off. The company, which first opened in 1973 as a clearance center in the lower-level of a downtown Seattle Nordstrom store, currently operates 210 stores across 40 states.
