Nordstrom announced that it will close its Florida Mall location on August 16, according to the Orlando Business Journal.
A spokeswoman for the mall informed OBJ via email that two new anchors will replace the department store that has been there since 2002, including an “exciting new concept” for the Orlando market (let the speculation begin with that one). It has not been announced when those stores will be revealed or when they will open.
These changes come as The Florida Mall is set open an American Girl store, debut a Zara flagship and establish a new indoor/outdoor food pavilion.
David Martin of Fox 35 Orlando gets word with Nordstrom President of Stores Jamie Nordstrom as well as asks shoppers their take on the store closing in the video below. As he points out, do not expect any store-closing sales as the August 16 date approaches.
