The fashion industry, especially recently, is making every effort to become more and more environmentally friendly, ecological and sustainable. Consumers are buying more consciously and prudently, new brands are being created every now and then with a pro-ecological approach, and the largest brands and fashion houses are giving up unecological practices, such as destroying unsold copies of luxury products. The result of such an initiative are off-price stores. What is their business, what can you find there and what are the advantages of shopping there? You can read about it below.

Off-price store – what is it?

The off-price store model is based on selling products at bargain prices. Branded products then go on sale, classified as the so-called "production surpluses". These types of stores deliver well-known brands and designer products every day at prices always up to 70% lower than regular sales prices in Poland and around the world. An off-price store is not just an outlet. An outlet usually sells products from one manufacturer. Off-prices operate on a different principle - they offer products from different brands and sellers. The aim of their activity is to use already produced things, instead of disposing of them.

What can you buy in off-price stores?

The off-price assortment may differ significantly. In stores like you will find only clothing, footwear and accessories. There are also off-price stores offering equipment RTV and Household appliances at reduced prices, furniture and other home accessories. It is not a rule that only older collections should go to this type of places. Sometimes production surpluses occur in the case of current collections, which can then be purchased in off-price stores much cheaper.
