In the next couple of years, Huntsvillians will have two Nordstroms to choose from, both 100 miles away from the city. After years of rumors, Nordstrom has officially announced that it will open a 3-story, 149,000 sq. ft store in Nashville, at the Mall at Green Hills in the wealthy southwest corner of the city. It will open in 2010, two years before the Birmingham location (announced last year) will open at Riverchase Galleria.
The one drawback- this will just make it harder to get a Nordstrom in the Huntsville area. Granted, our population is small, but what we lack in people, we make up for in population growth, a high average income, and a coming explosion in retail space.
