UPDATED: Nordstrom to Close Providence Place Mall Store
Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Nordstrom announced its plans on Tuesday to close its full-line store at Providence Place, which originally opened in August 1999.
The store will remain open through Friday, January 4, 2019.
"The decision to close a store is always a tough one for us because we know it impacts both our customers and our employees," said Jamie Nordstrom, president of Nordstrom stores. "We've been fortunate to serve customers here for nearly 20 years and have built meaningful relationships with our customers and community in that time.
"We look at our business market-by-market to understand where we have opportunities to grow our business while also being as efficient as possible in serving our customers. When we look at our business in the Providence market, we determined it made most sense to end our Providence Place lease," said Nordstrom.
