Ladies and gents, it's finally here. Today is the grand opening of Nordstrom Rack in Union Square!

The store is in the southeast end of Union Square, the former home to the Virgin Megastore. Surprisingly, this will be Nordstrom's first home in Manhattan as they've struggled to find the right venue over the years.

Nordstrom Rack will house department store wares at about 50-60% off retail price. Now there's something to smile about. While much of their merchandise comes from what doesn't sell in other parts of the country, designers also send their lines directly.

According to Racked NY's website, Nordstrom Rack will showcase the following brands - Free People, Elizabeth & James, Mike & Chris, Milly, Tracy Reese, Michael Kors, Nanette Lepore, Rebecca Minkoff (yes!!), Fendi, Prada, and much more.

Bargain shopping is my favorite sport. If you don't understand this grandiose claim, welp, you've clearly been raised by a different mother.

until next time,
