Retail is a very wide category. So the best place to begin is by nailing down your business strategy—think about your vision, goals, and target customer. Ask yourself, what am I selling? Who is purchasing my products?

Once you’ve created your strategy, brainstorm words that best describe your retail brand.

One of the most important things is to verify the business name isn’t taken. Choosing the same name as another business is a big no-no! Remember, Shopify’s free brand name generator is here to help inspire creative and unique business name ideas for retail!

Catchy retail names are memorable, fun, and original. They also speak to your brand and audience. When coming up with catchy retail names, consider the following methods:

  • Alliterate
  • Turn it into a pun
  • Avoid being literal
  • Use symbolism
  • Rhyme
  • Consider using acronyms

When it comes to creative retail store names, it’s all about authenticity and individuality. What you name your retail store depends on what you’re selling. Are you selling food? Home goods? Beauty products? Clothing? All of the above?

Consider the type of retail products you’re selling and who will be purchasing. In general, strong business names are:

  • Interesting: think outside the box. Your business name doesn’t necessarily have to be specific to what you’re selling
  • Universal: this ensures the retail brand name makes sense across all languages
  • Easy to pronounce: you want your brand name to be easy to find and remember

Yes! The retail store names generator tool from Shopify is free to use for all businesses and entrepreneurs. You can run as many searches as you like!

Some of the best retail shop names include:

  • Target
  • Macy’s
  • Nordstrom
  • Costco
  • Wayfair
  • Saks Off 5th
