* 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...

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/FlyingWitch'' has a cafe run by witches that's disguised as a decaying abandoned house. After performing a short ritual, (human) customers see a perfectly normal building with a sign out front. Regulars include a pair of ladybugs and a fox, so the disguise is probably to keep Muggles from bothering the other guests.

* ''{{Dota 2}}'' and ''DefenseOfTheAncientsAllStars'': There is literally a place called the "Secret Shop", although it's not actually secret to the players. It sells items which aren't available from the normal shop. It's located close to the river running through the middle of the map, and by visiting it you run the risk of being found and killed by the enemy team.
