* The DC universe has Paul Gambi, who's shop is similar to Leo's but not seen as often, mostly in ComicBook/TheFlash's comic. (clearly a ShoutOut to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Gambaccini Paul Gambaccini.]])

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'': In Gerudo Town, there is a hidden shop that requires a password to access. If you do manage to gain access to it, you find out ''why'' it's hidden: it sells goods that are illegal by Gerudo law, such as male Gerudo clothes and a skeletal outfit deemed heretical to their spiritual beliefs.

But then there is that one shop, whose proprietor takes lack of advertising UpToEleven: this shop's defining feature is how hard it is to just to get in. Maybe it's just ludicrously hard to find or get to, maybe you need a keycard or passcode, or maybe only the king is allowed to shop there naked during a full moon while holding a child's teddy bear in one hand and the SwordOfPlotAdvancement in the other. Maybe some combination thereof. Either way, expect getting in to this place to be harder than getting to your local department store.

* The question of, "who makes every character's costume" was answered in ''Amazing Spider-Man #502'', which introduced Leo Zelinsky. A tailor from Brooklyn, he doesn't do much to keep his business secret except what small business owners like himself always rely on - using only word of mouth to advertise - but he caters to just about ''every'' super-human in the Marvel Universe, heroes and villains alike. (Why does he see nothing wrong with this? As he explains, "If Doctor Octopus goes into a deli and orders a cheese sandwich and the clerk gives it to him, does that make the clerk a bad man? Everyone has to eat, everyone needs clothes.") To avoid conflicts between the heroes and villains, his shop is open for the first group on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, the second on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. He also maintains a strict confidentiality policy for all of his clients, only breaking it once in order to prevent a murder. Otherwise, his clients have included such big names as ComicBooks/TheAvengers, ComicBooks/{{XMen}}, and Doctor Doom.

* The shops in the Thieves' Guild in VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim. At first, there's only your fence (plus a bartender) selling stuff, who must stay secret by necessity to avoid being persecuted by the few honourable city guards left in Riften. When you first show up, both the bar and the Thieves' Guild itself are both down on their failing luck. Once (if) you restore the Thieves' Guild to its former glory, more shops show up. From the player's point-of-view, they're secret because you have to unlock them by finishing an entire questline plus a lot of sidequests. From everyone else's point-of-view, they're secret because the Thieves' Guild isn't exactly on Main Street...
