English translation:Warehouse sale or clearance sale
Explanation:
Depending on context, this could be either warehouse sale or clearance sale.

lager = warehouse or stock
salg = sale

If 'lagersalg' means the same as 'udsalg', it could meant 'clearance sale'.

warehouse selling/warehouse shop


Explanation:
Excuse a merry Swede but a 'warehouse sale' is a selling activity with special discount prices for a special reason (season, overstocking, trend shifts etc.) and corresponds to the the Danish 'udsalg' doesn't it?
'salg' is the normal salling activity in this case from the stock/warehouse as opposed to normal shops.

Retail Sale


Explanation:
Applying the Danish word, "lagersalg," and the definition used in the en/da version ("selling goods directly from the store room") seems proportional and appropriate to the given term, "retail sale."

Good luck!
