PEP stores are the ultimate budget-friendly baby and children's clothing outlet. During these difficult financial times, a trip to your nearest PEP is probably your best bet for finding affordable, yet durable winter clothing for the little ones.

Please note that PEP stores have advised parents not to bring their children to the store with them. Rather measure your kiddies at home and perhaps purchase their clothing in a size larger than normal. Returns may be limited on certain items, as well.
