Nordstrom Inc., the Seattle-based chain of luxury department stores, said Thursday that it plans to open a two-level Nordstrom Rack store in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood next spring.
Nordstrom Rack is the company’s discount division.
The new store, with about 38,000 square feet of space, will be at the Newbry, a building with entrances on both Newbury and Boylston streets. It will occupy space previously used by Filene’s Basement, Nordstrom said; other Newbry tenants include Boston Sports Club, H&M, and Victoria’s Secret.
Nordstrom Rack stores feature merchandise from traditional Nordstrom stores at 50 to 60 percent off original prices, said the company, which operates 117 full-line Nordstrom stores and 110 Nordstrom Rack stores.
In May, the Globe reported that Nordstrom was seeking to take over space vacated after Filene’s Basement filed for bankruptcy protection and that entire chain was liquidated.
