Flushing’s Nordstrom Rack is set to close at the end of January.
Nordstrom Rack Skyview Center, located at 40-24 College Point Blvd, will close on Jan. 31, 2020 and leave 42 employees without jobs, according to a notice the company filed with the New York State Department of Labor.
The closure comes amid an expansion of the company’s New York City operations.
Just last week, Nordstrom opened its first NYC flagship store for women and children in Manhattan’s Central Park Tower and in July, the company opened a Rack store in Staten Island’s Empire Outlets.
A spokeswoman for Nordstrom said the company is working to find Flushing employees new roles within the company.
The Flushing location is Queen’s only Nordstrom Rack store.
This is unbelievable, I love this store and its location. I could never visit Skyview and not run in Nordstrom Rack. This is a great lost.
That’s really sad to hear. The staff there have always been the best– genuinely kind and helpful. I really hope they find good positions for all these employees.
I’ve been visit other locations but flushing shop has worst merchandise! It looks more likely garage sale! Not enough selection, sizes & very messy!
I been telling their employees about the layout of their store multiple times over the years, they don’t seem to care. Also, the store itself is way overpriced for the neighborhood they serve.
Open a MUJI in its place – the Asians will flock there like bees to a hot can of Coke on a summer day and get lit over some pens and stationery to excite their frequent trips to the library nearby.
How is this not racist???
The problem is not the Store. The issue is layout, management, merchandise. Just give the public what they want, and they will shop there!
But what is it that people want?
