A retail company is a company that sells consumer goods or services to customers through multiple channels of distribution to earn a profit. Retailers satisfy demand identified through a supply chain. They typically fill the small orders of many individuals, who are end-users, rather than large orders of a small number of wholesale, corporate or government clientele.
Traditionally, retail companies have sold their products and services through brick-and-mortar stores, whether it be through department stores, warehouses, convenience stores, supermarkets or other kinds of outlets. But many retailers increasingly are selling goods online through websites, internet marketplaces, and mobile applications.
