I went to my spin class last night and came out with more than just a work out -- I found out that Boise's new Nordstrom Rack wants to win over shoppers from the moment it opens its doors on April 12th.

For those who don't know yet, Boise's new Nordstrom's Rack is located in the old Linens and Things location near the Boise Towne Square Mall.

Here's how I got the inside scoop:

My instructor is a former Nordstroms’ buyer and is helping to open the new Boise Nordstrom Rack next week.  She told me Nordstrom Rack is hoping to get 300 people there on opening day (no problem, haven’t we been asking for a Nordy’s since the mall opened?).

The store is also giving out some enticing goodies to get people in the door.

Warning: to get the stuff, it looks like you have to be a bit of a detective, be very lucky, and actually be present on April 12th to win. Read below.
Twenty golden hangers will be hidden throughout the store. Customers who find the golden hangers can redeem them for $100 to spend inside the new store (one hanger per customer). Follow Nordstrom on Twitter @boise_rack between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. on opening morning to find clues!

RACE THROUGH THE RACK:              
Customers can enter a drawing to win a 90-second, $2,000 shopping spree. The winner's name is drawn and announced at 8:45 a.m. before the store opens at 9 a.m. (must be present to win).

A final word of caution:  If you go, be sure to arrive early because there is likely to be a long line.  However, a complimentary breakfast and entertainment will be included for those waiting for Boise's newest discount fashion outlet.
