In this article, we’ve collected the 30 most common types of clothing stores. Theoretically, it may seem that a clothing store is just a store where clothes are sold and there can not be many types of such stores. However, the truth is that there are many different types of clothes stores that have something different to offer and focus on selling slightly different products.

It is important to be aware of how many types of stores there are, because customers who go shopping are often choosing stores to which they will go depending on the specialization of the stores. This is especially important in the case of shopping centers and places where there is a lot of competition between clothing stores.
