CHARLOTTE-Unlike Orlando, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati where Nordstrom has either delayed or suspended new-store openings, the Seattle-based retailer is expected to open its SouthPark unit here as scheduled by next fall. Other potential openings are in north Raleigh, NC and south Durham, NC in 2003. (Please see related story on Orlando city page.)

The commitment to Cincinnati consisted only of a letter of intent. There was no written commitment to Pittsburgh.
