Next week is one of the most exciting fashion moments in Pittsburgh! Finally, Pittsburgh is getting its first Nordstrom Rack, people!!! Can you tell the high pitch note and screaming behind those first two sentences? I’m WAAAAAAAYYYY tooooooo excited. It’s about time! Thank you Nordstrom Rack for coming to the Steel City!
Nordstrom Rack Pittsburgh Opening
On August 26, Nordstrom Rack will be opening its first store in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It’s located at The Block Northway, close to the Nordstrom Store located at Ross Park Mall.
What is Nordstrom Rack?
If you haven’t heard of Nordstrom Rack, may I ask where you’ve been hiding all these years? Just kidding! But really… I’ve been a fan of Nordstrom Rack ever since I can’t remember. When I was living in Maryland, I frequent the Rack at the Towson Shopping Center. I’ve scored many-a-great-deals in that location! Take for example, these Burberry snake pumps that were under $250 (unheard of).
When I moved to North Texas, I was super happy to find so many Nordstrom Rack locations near me. Just to give you an idea of the great deals I found there…
Some midi rings and beanies under $10
And Hello Chanel Flats under $250, I Swear!
Insane, right? And these are just a few of the deals I scored at Nordstrom Rack throughout the years. So when we moved to Pittsburgh, I was pretty sad to learn there wasn’t any here. But thank goodness, that’s about to change!

Why I ❤ Love The Rack
- On-Site Alterations
- Nordstrom Rewards
- Rack Stores App
- Mobile check-out devices
- Discounted brand-name apparel, shoes, accessories (so many branded products at discounted prices)
- Premium denim for men, women, and kids (I once got a couple of 7FAM jeans under $50!!! WHAT?)
- Thousands of pairs of shoes and handbags (my favorite departments to check out)
The first Nordstrom Rack opened as a clearance center in the lower-level of the Downtown Seattle Nordstrom store in 1973. As Nordstrom expanded across the country, Rack stores followed. The new Nordstrom Rack at Hamilton Crossing, along with Nordstrom Rack Pittsburgh at The Block Northway opening the same day in Pittsburgh, will make 5 locations in Pennsylvania.
