Nordstrom has given us plenty of opportunities over the past few months to peer into the construction site of its upcoming Rack store on Union Square. This picture was taken at the end of last week, and it looks like your average retail gut renovation, until you realize that the store is set to open on May 11th (It's only written on the side of the building).
That's in five weeks.
It's not that we are expecting the kind of luxury shopping experience that one would find at a flagship Nordstrom full-line store, but perhaps the Rack is a little more spartan of a set-up than we had imagined.
