Outlet is a Storefront child theme that has been designed to be used by tech stores. If features a clean and minimalist design with subtle details that point to the tech industry.
That’s not to say that it is restricted to that industry though. The theme just presents a design, it may be that the design is a fit for your industry as well.
To re-iterate; the theme just provides the design. Features come from plugins that you can pick and choose. You might think that adding some different plugins could turn Outlet into the perfect theme for the fashion industry as well.
Speaking of plugins, this demo showcases several free and premium Storefront extensions which we’ll go through now;
