Retail Market

1. The market for the sale of goods or services to consumers rather than producers or intermediaries. For example, a retail clothing store sells to people who will (most likely) wear the clothes. It does not include the sale of the clothes to other stores who will resell them. The retail market contrasts with the wholesale market.

2. The market for the sale of securities to individual investors rather than institutional investors or broker-dealers. See also: Retail banking.
