Any business entity selling to consumers directly is retailing – in a shop, in person, by mail, on the internet, telephone or a vending machine
Retail also has a life cycle – newer forms of retail come to replace the older ones – the corner grocer may change to a supermarket
Includes all activities involved in selling or renting products or services to consumers for their home or personal consumption

4. Retailing
Term retail derived from French word ‘retaillier’ meaning ‘to break bulk’
Order sizes tend to be small but many
Caters to a wide variety of customers. Keeps a large assortment of goods
Lot of buying in the outlet is ‘impulse’- inventory management is critical
Selling personnel and displays are important elements of the selling process

Targeted customer mix decides the marketing mix of the retailer
