CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — The last anchor store at the Mall of Partridge Creek in Clinton Township will close down this fall.

Nordstrom announced the store’s last day of business will be Sept. 13.

“Looking at our needs in the Detroit market, we decided it made the most sense to close this store and focus on serving customers at our six other Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack stores, as well as online,” Nordstrom said in a statement.

A statement was also released by Starwood Retail Partners regarding the closure.

Nordstrom has been an excellent partner to The Mall at Partridge Creek and Starwood Retail Partners. We understand their decision to close this location, as we’ve seen traditional department store anchors shrink their footprints.

The Nordstrom closure will not impact the vibrancy of Partridge Creek, the premier lifestyle shopping center destination in southeastern Michigan, which draws 11.5 million visitors annually. We feature more than 90 distinct stores and restaurants, continue to add exciting new merchants, and are extremely proud of our engaging Live 360 year-round community programs.

The retail landscape is constantly changing with consumers eager to explore new concepts, which include a rich variety of possible anchor tenants. We are continually evaluating new merchants and features for Partridge Creek and look forward to this opportunity to evolve our platform, as we continue to provide shoppers, diners and visitors at Partridge Creek with an engaging, active and compelling experience.

Last year, Carson’s, the other anchor store at the mall closed its doors, along with two other locations in metro Detroit.

And earlier this month, Lord & Taylor announced it would close the Lakeside Mall location.
