Binco logo in GTA San Andreas.

Binco is a comparatively low-priced clothing store that the player may visit in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. 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.

Description

Available after completion of the mission "Nines and AKs", there are four Binco stores located all over San Andreas:

Binco is not based on any specific real-life store, though it may be either a thrift store or clothing exchange store like Plato's Closet or Ross. This could possibly explain the signs in the store which read "Everything 99¢", despite having nothing in the store that sells for 99¢.

The store's motto is, fittingly, More trash for less cash!.

Clothing

The range of clothing offered at Binco in GTA San Andreas 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.

For a comprehensive list of clothing available from Binco in GTA San Andreas, see /Clothing in GTA San Andreas.

Trivia
