A discount store is a non-stop sale. Discount stores depend on moving large volumes of goods at lower margins. Often discount stores concentrate on selling clearance or refurbished goods. Some discount stores buy up excess inventories. Others buyout the inventory of failed businesses, others just have deals with manufacturers that produce large amounts of product.
The inventory at discount stores is not necessarily lower quality than regular stores. Often name brand stores don't want to sell their clearance merchandise...so they will sell the remainders to the discount stores.
The web is the perfect venue for discount merchandise. There is a large market, which means that goods can move fast. Here is a short list of some of the best discount stores on the net.
DrugStore.com is the Internet's leading pharmacy. They carry both prescription and over the counter remedies as well as a large selection of health and supplemental goods. In the store, you will find a broad selection of vitamins and health care products.
Sierra Trading Post of Cheyenne, Wyoming is a disounter of top quality outdoor wear and equipment. The store carries coats, jeans and a variety of outdoor and camping gear. It is a great place to find comfortable clothes for the corporate casual office, as well as winter gear for those expeditions in the high Sierras. (more bargains)
