In a sea of predictable sale holidays, few genuinely exciting events stand out for savvy sale-hunters — and one of those hallowed markdowns is Nordstrom Rack’s Clear the Rack sale, where the off-price retailer chops an extra 25% off its already deeply discounted clearance section.
Like Nordstrom Rack itself, the event is full of surprises; cropping up periodically with little advance notice and teeming with buyable bargains from beloved in-house brands like BP. and Z by Zella, respected standbys like Madewell, Nike, Steve Madden, and a slew of designer brands that prefer their discounted duds keep a low profile. Ahead, we’re answering all your burning questions about the sale (which ends September 4) and rounding up the need-to-cart goods to consider.
