NORDSTROM CLOSING AT DULLES TOWN CENTER

One of the nicest department stores in Loudoun County is pulling out. Nordstrom has announced they are closing their location at the Dulles Town Center shopping mall. The final day will be Sept. 8.

A statement from the company president said they would focus on other area stores and, after 15 years at the mall, feel that closing this location is the best decision for them. (Click here to read the full statement from Nordstrom.)

There are other Nordstrom stores in the area including Tysons Corner and Pentagon City, as well as several Nordstrom Rack stores.

No mall wants to have one of its major anchor stores vacant, but in this time of online shopping, major retailers like department stores are finding their business model is more challenging than ever. It will be interesting to see if the DTC can find a new tenant for that space.
