JCP a goner. Macy’s is bailing early. Store #2 has always been lackluster, but it’s dear to the family. Has Nordstrom committed to keeping this store open through the redevelopment of the mall?

The restaurant at Northgate FLS always depressed me, a morgue of old people and dead space.
No more monkeys at the shoe store.
Good night, store #2.
In yet another sign of the rapidly shrinking landscape for traditional retailers and shopping malls, Nordstrom announced plans to close its Northgate location in Seattle, one of the oldest in the family-run company, in August.
The Northgate store’s approximately 170 employees were given the news Friday morning, according to a Nordstrom statement. The Seattle-based retailer is “confident we’ll be able to offer new roles to each employee,” said spokesperson Emily Sterken in an email. The Nordstrom Rack at Northgate will remain open.
“Looking at our business needs in the Seattle market and the future plans for Northgate Mall as it prepares for a significant transformation, we’ve made the decision to close our Northgate Mall store,” the company statement said of the closure, which is set for Aug. 9.
Looks like the plan is to replace Nordstrom & Forever XXI with office space and a grocery store.
