In a tremendous example of dating up (in our opinion), One Union Square, the plaza's most eligible catch and formerly linked with the Virgin Megastore, lands Nordstrom Rack, the hottest new girl in town. Mazel tov!
Nordstrom announced yesterday that it will land with a bang for the first time in Manhattan, moving Virgin's old space during the first quarter of next year. Best Buy will replace Circuit City next door.
Nordstrom's more affordable sister store will offer the chain's merch for up to 70 percent off, seriously boosting the bargain shopping status of that little strip along 14th street on the south side of Union Square, which already boasts fashion fashion and discount lines like Forever21, Filene's Basement and DSW.
