"Low-quality clothing at low prices. Where fashion’s rejects come to die."
― Description at Bawsaq.com.

Binco (BAWSAQ: BIN) is a comparatively low-priced clothing store that appears in the 3D Universe and HD Universe. The player can buy stocks from them in the Bawsaq.com website in GTA V.

Description

The name Binco may refer to JNCO (pronounced "Jenco"), a Los Angeles-based urban clothing company that first gained prominence in the early 1990s.

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, available after completion of the mission "Nines and AKs", there are four Binco stores located all over San Andreas. The stores are primarily based on a Flea market. This could possibly explain the signs in the store which read "Everything 99¢", despite having nothing in the store that sells for 99¢.

It is possible to see a Binco advertisement by the border of Callahan Bridge and Chinatown in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, however, no stores can be found within the city.

Binco was also intended to appear in Grand Theft Auto IV, however it was replaced with the Russian Shop for unknown reasons. Binco logos still remain around the city, however, including on vans.

In Grand Theft Auto V, there are five Binco stores within Los Santos, with two of them accessible to the player. They share the interiors and the clothing of the Discount Stores. Binco and Sub Urban stores play music from Radio Mirror Park.

The range of clothing offered at Binco are generally affordable, with prices that do not exceed the $100 mark. The store's selection of items are centered around generic clothing, as well as low-end clothing commonly donned by gang members.

The store also offers various novelty articles of clothing, such as joke eyepieces, masks, and a cowboy hat and cowboy boots. Binco also earns the distinction of being the only store chain to sell briefs (known as Boxers in-game, which can only be worn without pants) to the player.

  • The Overlooked Red Blouson is a reference to the film The Shining, where the main character, Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), is wearing a similiar one.
  • The Champagne Driver Blouson is a reference of the jacket worn by the unnamed driver (Ryan Gosling) from the movie Drive, but instead of a scorpion in the back, the jacket is sporting a crab.
