Don’t Call it a Comeback

18 months after the flood, new shops abound


The Warwick Mall has gone through a major transformation in the past 18 months. Rising from what most thought was the impossible after the Flood of 2010, the mall is brimming with new stores (H&M, Off Broadway Shoes), revamped anchors (seriously, have you been to the Macy’s?), a Pinkberry, and even a spectacular laser show at Jordan’s Furniture. And on November 8, Nordstrom Rack, the off-price division of Nordstrom, will be opening (conveniently right in time for the holiday season and just three weeks before the annual shopocalypse known as Black Friday). Expect to find in-season merchandise at 30-70% of its regular retail price. The grand opening is at 9am, so check it out and get started on your shopping list. And depending on the strength of your willpower, you might just indulge in a few early “me” gifts while you’re there.
