Retailers provide the service of making goods available to consumers in convenient quantities and locations. Retailing involves buying from wholesalers or direct from manufacturers, breaking bulk, displaying goods for sale either physically or online, and sometimes delivery.
Wholesalers are independent organizations in the distribution channel that buy in bulk and sell to resellers rather than to consumers. Both retailers and wholesalers take ownership of the goods and so bear the risk of carrying inventory. They also reduce the total number of transactions required for the process of transferring goods from manufacturers to consumers.
The retail and wholesale industry can be further classified as follows i) Department And Other General Merchandise Stores, ii) Wholesale Trade Market, iii) Specialty Retailers And iv) E-Commerce And Other Non-Store Retailers
