shop

a business premise which is engaged in the retailing of products to customers who visit the shop or store to make purchases. The range of merchandise they stock and sell varies considerably from, at one extreme, total specialization on the one product (as in a shoe shop, for example) to retail operations involving thousands of different lines (as in a large DEPARTMENT STORE). Shop sizes too vary considerably, ranging upwards from small ‘corner shop’ premises to massive ‘hypermarket'complexes (see SUPERMARKET). See RETAIL OUTLET, RETAILER, DISTRIBUTION CHANNEL.
