NASHVILLE, TN-Nordstrom Inc., the Seattle-based specialty fashion retailer, has signed a letter of intent to open a new anchor store at the Mall at Green Hills with plans to open its first Tennessee location in the fall of 2010. The three-level, 149,000-sf department store will become part of the 735,000-sf upscale mall owned and managed by Nashville-based Davis Street Land Co.

The Nashville location marks another spot on the Southeast map where Nordstrom aims to open additional stores over the next four years. Others are scheduled to open at Waterside Shops in Naples, FL, this November; followed by University Town Center in Sarasota, FL, in 2010; and Riverchase Galleria in Birmingham, AL, in 2012.

“Overall, our goal is to be in the best retail markets and the best centers,” Nordstrom spokesman Michael Boyd tells “We haven’t penetrated the Southeast as much and we really enjoy the response from customers in that market. We feel there is room to grow.”
