Nordstrom is set to close both of its stores in downtown San Francisco.
The supermarket chain said its San Francisco Center store is set to close at the end of August, and its Market Street Rack store will close after business on July 1. Both stores are located next to each other on Market Street.
“Decisions like these are never easy, and this decision was particularly difficult,” Jamie Nordstrom, Nordstrom’s chief store officer, said in a statement. “We have spent more than 35 years serving customers in downtown San Francisco, building relationships with them and investing in the local community. But as many of you know, the dynamics of the downtown San Francisco market have changed dramatically over the past several years, affecting customer traffic to our stores and our ability to operate successfully.”
