Nordstrom Rack said Monday it will open its sixth Seattle-area store, at Northgate Mall, in November.
The new store will cover about 41,000 square feet previously occupied by Toys R Us at the mall's southeast corner.
Nordstrom Rack, the off-price retail division of Seattle-based Nordstom, will join a full-price Nordstrom store at the mall.
The company has been putting more of its Rack stores near its top-performing full-line clothing stores, including in downtown Seattle, where it recently opened a Rack store next to its flagship.
"Northgate has been a special home to us for over 60 years, and we're thrilled to have the opportunity to add a Nordstrom Rack in such a terrific location in our hometown," Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack, said in a statement, referring to the full-line division's long-time presence there.
The Rack also operates stores in Auburn, Bellevue, Lynnwood and Tukwila.
The Seattle Times initially reported Nordstrom's plans for a Northgate Rack store in April, after the company filed for a building permit to make about $1.9 million in renovations. Nordstrom officials did not provide confirmation until Monday's announcement.
