About the heading Discount Stores in Yellow Pages®
A discount store is a type of department store that sells products at prices lower than those asked by traditional retail outlets. Most discount department stores offer a wide assortment of goods while others specialise in merchandise such as jewellery, electronic equipment or electrical appliances.
Discount stores may offer special deals on selected products or discounts across their range of products. For example, a two dollar discount store offers all its products for only two dollars. Discount stores are different to wholesale retailers. Wholesalers usually specialise in a particular item, for example, furniture, or they may specialise in the sale of bulk items where you must purchase a large number of a particular item in order to get the discounted rate.
In contrast to wholesalers, discount stores will usually offer a wide variety of products at cheap individual prices. Goods that can be purchased from discount stores include gifts, baskets, craft flowers, and cosmetics etc. Some factories also have discount stores where you can buy goods manufactured by the factory at greatly reduced prices.
Discount stores are located in cities, metropolitan and most regional areas. You can find these shops in large shopping malls as well as small village shopping centres. Many discount stores are open seven days a week. If you are looking for information on discount stores look under this heading in Yellow Pages®.
