Discount clothing shops stock a range of budget fashionwear and discounted fashion label items and often specialise in a particular niche such as childrenswear or womenswear. As well as clothing, some shops sell shoes, bags and accessories such as costume jewellery, and many supply ex-catalogue and clearance stock.
Discount clothing shops typically trade from high-street premises and market stalls, and increasingly trade online.
