Nordstrom Rack grand opening: Rainy day doesn’t keep the shoppers away

Discount upscale department store shoppers flocked to the new Nordstrom Rack location despite the rain, in hopes of getting their hands on an emerald hanger or the latest discounted 7 For All Mankind jeans.
The new location, located in Westlake Center, opened today after nearly 25 years of being two blocks away at Second Avenue and Pine Street.
The new location is next door to the flagship store, but Nordstrom says it doesn’t think the discount store will take away sales from its main location.
During the grand opening celebration, shoppers had the chance to win a $2,000 shopping spree, in which one person had 90 seconds to grab up to $2,000 worth of merchandise.
