Retail Management

Retail is one of the largest industries in the world by number of businesses and number of employees. Retail sales just in the U.S. (total retail salesRetail Management include the categories of gasoline, automobiles, and food service, as well as merchandise) totaled an estimated $4.300 trillion in 2009 according to Plunkett Research. Sales were $4.413 trillion in 2008 and $4.482 trillion in 2007. Retails sales in 2008-2009 were driven partly by deep discounting.

Meanwhile, competition among retailers has never been tougher. A retailer without a significant competitive advantage doesn’t stand a chance. Superstores are battling each other on every major corner while direct marketers are stealing customers from stores. Online selling at deep discounts is even making immense inroads into major consumer purchases such as jewelry. Vacancy levels are higher at malls and shopping centers than they have been in years, and there are very few major chains that are currently expanding.
