It’s been a long wait for the Coachella Valley, but that ends next week as Nordstrom Rack opens its doors in Palm Desert on Thursday, March 6.

The discount sister of department chain Nordstrom has finally made its way to the desert and is incredibly visible from Highway 111. To celebrate, Nordstrom Rack is hosting a grand opening event complete with music, breakfast snacks and a drawing to win a $1,000 shopping spree, and the first 1,000 customers to make a purchase will also receive a complimentary tote.

The event begins at 8 a.m., and while you might not be able to grab the first pair of Sarah Jessica Parker shoes in Palm Desert, you might be able to grab the first pair on sale months later.
