Commerce was incorporated in 1960, as the 67th city in Los Angeles County, to prevent neighboring cities such as Vernon and Los Angeles from annexing industrial land for tax revenue and elected its first city mayor, Maurice Quigley.
In the 1970s and 1980s Commerce went through a period of deindustrialization and the Citadel Outlet Mall is an example of that, where a tire factory used to occupy the space.
Commerce has a large indoor aquatic center, The Brenda Villa Aquatic Center, which is named after a four-time Olympic medalist water polo player.
