Nordstrom Rack Coming to Friendship Heights on May 16

Friendship Heights has long been a shopping mecca but after the departure of Linens 'n' Things, it seemed a little forlorn, with a big empty storefront bridging the space between Maggiano's Restaurant and Loehmann's. Now there's a giant banner stretched across those empty windows announcing the May 16 opening of Nordstrom Rack, the discount version of Nordstrom's upscale department store.

The opening of Nordstrom Rack makes the two-block stretch of Wisconsin Avenue between Western Avenue and Ingomar Streets into something of a mini-outlet mall. There are already three other discount clothing/department stores in that area: Loehmann's, just next door to the new Nordstrom Rack; Filene's Basement, in Mazza Gallerie across the street and T.J. Maxx, just across Jenifer Street from Mazza Gallerie.

Now if only we had a Costco!
