To kick off the opening of Queens’ first Nordstrom Rack at The Shops at SkyView Center in Flushing on Wednesday, Sept. 10, the retailer is hosting a party, where one lucky customer can win a $1,000 shopping spree.

The “Rally at the Rack” event starts at 8 a.m., at 40-24 College Point Blvd., with music, free breakfast treats and coffee in the 35,000-square-foot, two-level store.

Customers 18 and older can enter a raffle to win one of 30 $100 gift cards, and one person will win the shopping spree, dubbed “Rule the Rack,” which will be drawn at 8:25 a.m.

Also, the first 1,000 customers to buy items at the store will get a free complimentary Nordstrom Rack tote bag.

The new Nordstrom Rack at the SkyView Center will be the 154th location in the country.

Nordstrom Rack will be moving into the SkyView Center in Flushing, the Seattle-based apparel company announced Tuesday.

Style-savvy shoppers can expect the discounted retail division of Nordstrom, Inc. to open its first Queens location this fall at 40-24 College Point Blvd.

The two-level store will be 39,000 square feet, officials said. Nordstrom Rack is also opening two stores in Brooklyn this year.

“We are excited about the opportunity to be a part of a dynamic retail center within a vibrant neighborhood in the heart of Queens and right off the Long Island Rail Road,” Nordstrom Rack President Geevy Thomas said.

“We look forward to opening next fall and bringing our customers the very best of our brands at great prices,” Thomas said.

The new storefront joins an expanding roster of national tenants, including Target, Old Navy and Bed Bath & Beyond and Best Buy.

SkyView owner Michael Dana said the addition takes Queens one step further to being a major retail destination.

“We are committed to providing shoppers great fashion at affordable price points and Nordstrom Rack is the perfect addition to our growing mix of retailers,” Dana said.
