If you’re not an avid stalker of the Nordstrom Rack website, you miss out on the best fashion deals money can buy. We consider Nordstrom Rack as one of our nearest and dearest friends because no matter when you look, you can always find a great deal on designer clothes, handbags and shoes. Most of their stock is already at least 20% off regular retail value, not to mention their extensive clearance section.
And as if all of this wasn’t enough to get us shopping to our hearts’ content, Nordstrom Rack even runs major sales events throughout the year that bring prices down to around 75% off. Yes, we’re serious… it’s called Clear The Rack.
What Is The Nordstrom Rack Clear The Rack Sale?
The Clear The Rack sale is basically Nordstrom Rack begging you to clear them of all their inventory. At least, that’s what it feels like because they drop their prices so low it’s like you’re making money while you’re shopping.
Real story: I once bought a pair of $295 La Vie Rebecca Taylor jeans from Nordstrom Rack for $99, and then saw the same jeans at the sale for $35 a month later.
The moral of the story is not that you should only shop from Nordstrom Rack during the Clear The Rack sale, because by the time of the sale there were only three sizes left of the style. But what we’re telling you is that the prices at these sales are truly unbelievable, so you need to know when Clear The Rack sales are going on.
