Retail

1. Relating to 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 that will resell them. Retail contrasts with wholesale.

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