Nordstrom’s off-price retail spinoff, Nordstrom Rack, opened in April in the former Circuit City at Arborland, offering 50-60 percent off original prices on clothing, shoes, beauty products, and home accents. Nordstrom Rack got its start in the basement of Nordstrom’s Seattle store in the early 1970s as a clearance department, according to the company website. Ann Arbor’s store is one of 124 locations nationwide.
