Within each section, racks and shelves are used to display the clothing items. These racks are arranged in an organized manner to allow customers to easily browse through the items. They are often sorted by style, making it convenient for customers to find what they are looking for. The racks should have signs or labels indicating the prices, discounts, or any special offers.

Fitting rooms typically have mirrors and hooks or hangers to hang clothes. The number of fitting rooms may vary depending on the size of the shop, but they are strategically placed within the sections for customers’ convenience.
