Related Shop Types
The classic department store is usually clothing-led, with a quality (rather than value) proposition.
Although the range of goods sold will vary, most will have ranges which include the following categories: men's clothing, women's clothing, children's clothing, footwear, cosmetics and perfumes, gifts, toys, sports goods, kitchen ware, crockery & porcelain, bathroom ware, soft furnishings, furniture, floor coverings, lighting, white goods, brown goods, and electronics.
They usually have a cafe and/or restaurant and may also offer services such as hairdressing. In the past food halls and book departments were also common.
- Large do-it-yourself stores shop=doityourself. Many of these will sell items in several homeware & furnishing categories. Example Homebase in the UK.
- Variety stores shop=variety_store. Variety stores sell across several discrete categories, but don't offer the full panoply of a department store. Usually the categories will involve goods with a rapid turnover; and typically at value price points. Most obviously variety stores do not sell extensive ranges of adult clothing; nor larger items of furniture. Example Wilko in the UK.
- Hypermarkets shop=supermarket. Extremely large supermarket outlets with extensive ranges of clothing, homeware etc, but primarily led by food sales. Examples: Walmart in North America; Carrefour in Europe
