New retailers eyeing the Bakersfield market, including Nordstrom Rack

 With the economy improving it looks like Bakersfield may be getting some big time retailers in the near future. That's the word from Duane Keahley, a senior partner with Cushman Wakefield, who told a group of business people that sources indicate deals are in the works for a Nordstrom Rack among others. Keathley said Nordstrom Rack is negotiating to locate at the RiverWalk.
 In addition he said, BevMo!, Oregon-based Les Schwab Tires, Dunkin Donuts and the health grocery store Sprout's may be coming to town. Sprout's may also locate at RiverWalk, he said. Others that may be coming include Laz-y-Boy Furniture (in the old McMahan's building on Ming), Aldi ( a grocery retailer and the same company that runs Trader Joe's in the United States), DSW (Designer Shoe Warehouse) also at The Shops at Riverwalk and a second Freddy's Steak and Frozen Custard store on Ming Avenue.
