Retail means the sale of goods or merchandise directly to the purchaser from a fixed location like a departmental store or a boutique. The end of supply chain consists of the retailers. Retailer buys goods directly from the manufacturers or through wholesalers in large quantities and sells it to the end user in small quantities. Retail is basically the distribution of products from producers to the consumers through convenient channels.

As the retail industry is rising it has led several institutions to start retail management courses. The purpose of this course is to prepare graduates to enter into the field of retailing. The demand of such professionals is increasing to process merchandise shipments, achieve high profit and store sales, to communicate with the clients for gaining their satisfaction and also for the administration of stores.
