Types of Retailing Investigating six different sorts of shopping environment
CONVENIENCE STORES Local shops such as newsagents and small grocery stores. They sell everyday items (called ‘low order goods). Their customers are local people from the nearby streets.
CBD Comparison Store They include book shops, shoe shops and chain stores like Woolworths. Shops found in the C.B.D. ( Central Business District ) usually sell more expensive high-order goods.
Street Market They sell vegetables and other goods (sometimes clothes) on some days of the week. They are often targeted at up-market customers e.g. organic farmers’ markets.
Out-of-town Superstore These are very large branches of a retail chain, usually found at the edge of a city in retail parks. The largest stores are called hypermarkets.
Retail Park Areas that have been set-aside at or near the edge of towns and cities where out- of-town stores can be grouped together. Sometimes large structures like Bluewater are created, so many retailers can be housed together.
Metro Stores The latest trend in retailing, these new scaled-down inner city supermarkets are often attached to petrol garages, making shopping easy for people at the same time as they re-fuel their cars. They also provide services for people who live within walking distance of the garage
