COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Seattle-based Nordstrom, Inc. plans to open a Nordstrom Rack in the former Barnes and Noble space at Harbison Court in Columbia, the retailer announced Tuesday.

The approximately 34,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in fall 2014.

When it opens, the Harbison Court Nordstrom Rack will be the company's second location in South Carolina, following the recently announced location in Greenville.

"We can't wait to open our South Carolina stores in 2014," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "This new location will help us serve customers more conveniently in Columbia and we're excited to bring our take of the ultimate treasure hunt to customers who are brand-conscious and love affordable fashion."

The new Nordstrom Rack will join an expanding list of retailers filling out Harbison Court alongside Ross Dress for Less, Marshalls, Pier 1 Imports, Golfsmith and Anna's Linens. In conjunction with the opening, DDR Corp. will be upgrading the façade of the entire center.

"The addition of Nordstrom Rack solidifies Harbison Court as the premier shopping destination for off-price branded merchandise in the Columbia market," said Paul Freddo, senior executive vice president of leasing and development for DDR. "The Harbison Court location will be the ninth Nordstrom Rack store in our portfolio and we look forward to ongoing success and expansion with this high-quality retailer."
