SEATTLE, Dec. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) announced today plans to open a new Nordstrom Rack in Warwick, R.I., located just outside of Providence.

Nordstrom Rack is the off-price retail division of Nordstrom, Inc., and carries on-trend merchandise from Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com at 50-60% off original Nordstrom prices.
