The Nordstrom Rack opened May 7th in East Palo Alto. Finally, I get my chance to search for those Missoni scarves I should have bought. The scarves were on sale, and then were sent to "the rack" for further markdowns. I missed my chance to own a Missoni! But now, I've got a second chance. The rack is where all good markdowns and sale merchandise from Nordstrom end up.
