SALT LAKE CITY -- The New City Creek Center will open two weeks and Nordstrom will continue its tradition of having a major presence in downtown Salt Lake.

On Thursday, members of the media were given a preview of the new retail space.

The new 125,000 square foot store will offer a tech savvy shopping experience, complete with mobile transaction devices.

“So if a customer is trying something on in the dressing room and needs to rush back to the office, we can ring up their transaction right there in the dressing room and have them out the door,” says Nordstrom spokesperson John Baily.

The City Creek Nordstrom will be one of eight stores company-wide to have a Gucci boutique.

They have hired about 240 people, many have transferred in from University and Fashion Place malls.

As part of the grand opening, they will be previewing the lingerie department Friday.

"We'll be bringing in 9,000 bras just for the event. because eight out of 10 women are wearing the wrong bra size. We’ll have a range of bra sizes from 30A to 44 JJ.

Also, prior to opening, Nordstrom will host a gala on March 20 to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Utah Symphony and Opera.
