Hudson’s Bay‘s outlet stores will only carry its stores’ clearance merchandise. This is different from both hr2 by Holt Renfrew and Nordstrom Rack. Both of these retailers include merchandise purchased specifically for them as well as clearance merchandise from their full-priced stores.
Hudson’s Bay made the decision to carry purely clearance merchandise in its outlets after a successful run of its clearance outlets at sister store Lord & Taylor in the United States.
