Nordstrom Rack offers the same brands as Nordstrom stores, but at up to 70 percent off. Although the labels are same, many of the products are purchased for Nordstrom Rack rather than for Nordstrom. Nordstrom’s discontinued, unsuccessful, or out-of-date merchandise is also available at Nordstrom Rack.
Twenty percent of the merchandise at Nordstrom Rack comes from Nordstrom shops or its online, while the remainder is purchased for the outlet. When a designer creates a product for an outlet, he or she creates a less expensive version of an existing product. The end result is a product with a similar appearance but cheaper materials and less ornamentation.
Although the majority of products are not of the same quality, the differences are often so minute that consumers cannot distinguish between them. Due to the lack of a specific outlet strategy, high-end designer goods frequently offer the best value. During holidays, outlet stores offer discounts as well.
Both Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack include apparel and accessories for men, women, and children.

Shop.Nordstrom.com features a sale section for reduced items, whilst NordstromRack.com provides a clearance section. Customers can earn Nordstrom reward points by buying in-store and online.
