Retailers sell goods and services to the final consumer. This puts retailers in a key position to test consumer acceptance of the product, gauge whether it is priced correctly, and assist customers in making their purchases.
Retailers can no longer be easily classified as department stores, drugstores, grocery stores, or gas stations depending on the merchandise sold and the services provided to customers. Retailing classifications have been blurred with the development of discount houses and warehouse retailing.
A department store – in addition to selling clothing, jewelry, and items for the home – may also provide services such as a beauty shop, jewelry repair, travel agency, photographer, and auto repair. Many drugstores look like small department stores. Gasoline stations often include a “mini market” selling everything from food to T-shirts and souvenirs.
Perhaps the biggest change has been in the grocery supermarket. Some provide so many services that it is like shopping in a small town. Virtually all your needs can be met under one roof. Buy your food, liquor, books, newspapers, magazines, toys, a camera, small home appliance, or housewares items for your kitchen; have your prescriptions filled; buy specialty food items from the market’s deli and bakery; eat at their in-store restaurant if you don’t feel like cooking; and don’t forget to do your banking. Some supermarkets also have a florist, an optometrist and even a barber shop.
Today’s retailing ranges from highly impersonal vending machines to small specialty shops dealing in luxury merchandise with much personal service. Some futurists envision the time when shopping will be done from one’s home using a personal computer terminal linked to a shopping network. Retailers who can sense new ways to fulfill consumer wants will be the ones who will prosper.
What kind of retailing do you think will prevail in the future?
