Specialty Retail

Retail is the final step in the distribution of merchandise process. Retail stores are fixed point-of-sale locations designed to attract a high volume of walk-in traffic. Typically, retail stores have extensive displays and sell merchandise for personal or household consumption. Specialty retailers include local boutiques and upscale national stores, which focus on private label products. Examples of specialty retailers include Anthropologie, Lululemon, Athletica, and West Elm.
