Nordstrom To Relocate Westfield UTC Store

SEATTLE, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) today announced plans to relocate its full-line store to a new space within Westfield UTC in San Diego, Calif. The new two-level, approximately 145,000-square-foot store is expected to open in 2017. Nordstrom will continue serving customers at its current location until it relocates.

This relocation is part of UTC's resort-inspired evolution, which also includes additional mall space and structured parking. Nordstrom will be moving to the west side of the center along Genesee Avenue.

"We're grateful for the unwavering support we've received from the La Jolla and the greater San Diego community for over 30 years," said Erik Nordstrom, president of stores for Nordstrom, Inc. "The new location at Westfield UTC will incorporate our latest store design concepts, which we hope will offer customers an improved shopping experience. We look forward to continuing to serve our customers at our current location until we get into our new home in 2017."

"We are delighted with today's announcement by Nordstrom," said Greg Miles, Westfield's U.S. chief operating officer. "It's a strong commitment to the UTC community, and one we share.  Nordstrom also serves as a key element to the ongoing revitalization of Westfield UTC which includes the addition of new specialty shops, restaurants, entertainment, sustainable design features and family-friendly amenities, raising the bar further on the top-notch shopping experience."

The improvements made to date at Westfield UTC have also provided significant economic benefits, including 1,400 new jobs and more than $1 million annually in new tax revenues for the City of San Diego.

Nordstrom opened its current 130,000-square-foot full-line store at University Towne Centre in September 1984. Nordstrom operates three other full-line stores in the greater San Diego area at Fashion Valley and Westfield Horton Plaza in San Diego and Westfield North County in Escondido, and four Nordstrom Rack stores at Carmel Mountain Plaza and Westfield Mission Valley in San Diego, Westfield Plaza Bonita in National City and Grand Plaza in San Marcos.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
