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

Binco (BAWSAQ: BIN) is a low-end clothing store that appears in the 3D Universe and HD Universe. The player can buy stocks from them on 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, access to Binco (and indeed all clothing stores) is unlocked after the mission "Nines and AKs". There are four Binco stores located in San Andreas, all sharing the same interior. The stores are primarily based on the concept of 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 near 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 due to appear in Grand Theft Auto IV but was replaced with the Russian Shop. Despite this, the Binco logo can still be seen around the city, such as 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.

Binco is the cheapest of the clothing shops in San Andreas, with no item exceeding $100. The clothing on sale is centred around street clothing commonly worn by gang members. Many items are available in green, the gang color of the Grove Street Families.

The store also offers various novelty articles of clothing, such as joke glasses, masks, eyepatches, and a cowboy hat and cowboy boots. Binco is the only store to sell briefs (referred to as boxers in game, which can be worn without pants).

Trivia

General

  • The HD Universe price tag logo is very similar to the Best Buy logo.
  • The name “Binco” is similar to “Bin Co.”, implying the stores are like garbage bins. This is reinforced by the company's slogan, "more trash for less cash".
  • The font used in the logo is Bauhaus 93. The HD Universe's letters are slightly modified.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • The default clothing for the protagonist Carl Johnson is entirely derived from Binco's range of items, including the White Tank (Torso), Blue Jeans (Legs) and Black Low-Tops (Shoes).
  • There is a "Grove ST" graffiti tag on the rear of the Las Venturas Airport store.
  • The hoodies available for purchase have a small Rockstar Games logo, just like some hoodies in other stores.

Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto V

  • The Overlooked Red Blouson is a reference to the film The Shining, where the main character, Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), wears a similar outfit. The name is also a reference to the Overlook Hotel, featured in the same movie.
  • 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 sports a crab.
