A new and improved Tacoma Mall is on the way. And it started today with the demolition of the former Mervyns store at the west side of the shopping center to make room for a new Nordstrom.

The demolition is projected to take about a month. Once the building is down, the mall will begin constructing a two-story, 144,000-square-foot Nordstrom that is scheduled to open in the fall of 2008.

The current Nordstrom store will be turned into a lifestyle center that will include restaurants and shops.
