Essentially a retailer is someone who buys goods in bulk, breaks the deliveries from the manufacturers down into household-sized chunks and then sells (or retails) them on to customers. Retail shops or stores run the full gamut from the ‘no-frills’, cheap and cheerful style warehouses right the way through to exclusive boutiques where customers need to make an appointment or come by recommendation first.
Retail jobs encompass everything from the sales assistants who deal with the customers to the warehouse staff and delivery truck drivers.
