    Hi!
    Could anyone help? How do you say in English "Tienda de ropa" (the shop where you can buy your clothes)? Is it clothes shop?
    Thanks a lot

    Ringo :tick:

    Another option is "clothing store."

    Yes, but you need to be careful. At least in AE a clothing outlet also means, at least in terms of chains, a less expensive store that carries things that didn't sell in the previous season at the "regular stores" or things that are slightly damaged.

    ok, so that's "for clothing outlets", and for "food outlets" i think everything is right, isn't it? (or Are also they cheaper?)

    In the United States, the more common term would be clothing store (rather than clothes shop, which would also be understood).

    Well, food outlets (in the same sense as clothing outlets) do actually exist but I they're not as common so I think if you were to use "food outlets" (in the United States) you'd be perfectly understood.

    Still, I can think of many more common words to use such as "grocery store," "market," and "food store."

    I hope this helps!
