Opened in 1902, it initially served the Warsaw-Kalisz Railway section between Łódź Kaliska and Łowicz stations, but in the 1920s it was rebuilt due to construction of a line between Łódź Widzew and Kutno stations. The main station's building was built in Renaissance Revival style, same as those in Pabianice, Zduńska Wola and Sieradz. The building hasn't changed significantly until the 1980s, when the first refurbishment was made (exterior was plastered, and the interior rearranged) and 2011, when the building went under capital refurbishment.[3] Since 2019 the station goes through another refurbishment.[4]

Currently, the station serves mostly ŁKA commuter trains running from Łódź to Łowicz and Kutno, as well as commuter routes from Łódź Kaliska, Łódź Fabryczna and Łódź Widzew stations as well. It is also a stopping point for PolRegio regional trains running between Łódź and Toruń, as well as PKP Intercity trains running from Gdynia to Katowice.
