Nordstrom Rack, the discount affiliate of high-end department store company Nordstrom Inc., is opening an outlet in Columbia this spring.

The roughly 41,000 square foot store opening at Columbia Crossing shopping mall will be the fourth Nordstrom Rack location in Maryland, Nordstrom Inc. said in a statement Monday.

The three Rack stores currently operating in the state are in Annapolis, Gaithersburg and Towson. Nordstrom also has four department store locations in Maryland: Columbia, Towson, Bethesda and Annapolis.

The new Nordstrom Rack will occupy a space formerly home to the Room Store.

“We're fortunate to have lots of customer living in Maryland and hope this new store will make it more convenient for our Columbia customers to shop both our full-line and Rack locations,” said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack, in the company's statement.
