In 1973, Nordstrom Rack opened their first store in Seattle as a clearance outlet full-line store.[2] The first Nordstrom Rack location was in the basement of a downtown Seattle Nordstrom store.

Their website was launched in February 2014 by Hautelook who was acquired by Nordstrom in 2011.[3] The Nordstrom Rack e-commerce site was built on a shared platform with Hautelook, which is Nordstrom’s flash sale business. When visiting the Nordstrom Rack's website, there is an option to navigate back and forth between Hautelook and Nordstrom Rack.

Nordstrom Rack makes up about a fifth of Nordstrom's overall sales. Since 2013 Nordstrom Rack has generated over 2.5 billion dollars in sales.[4]

In 2017 Nordstrom Rack plans on opening stores in Canada which will begin their global expansion.[5]
