An opening date for the long awaited Nordstrom Rack in Center City has been announced.

The off-priced clearance store that will be taking over 1700 Chestnut Street is set to open on Friday, October 24 at 9 a.m.

"We intend to bring our very best—exciting fashion from brands our customers love at great prices—to make the most of this opportunity to serve customers at the heart of Center City," said Nordstrom Rack President Geevy Thomas after announcing the retailer would be coming to Philadelphia over eight months ago.

Nordstrom Rack on Chestnut Street will be four-levels and occupy 39,000 of the 107,300-square-foot building previously owned by Daffy’s. Daffy’s, another discount retailer, closed in 2012 after occupying the space for 20 years.

From the new tenants, shoppers can expect products from brands like Diane von Furstenberg, American Apparel, TOPSHOP, UGG Australia and Ted Baker.
