Retailing is an intensely competitive sector. Today’s consumers are spoiled for choice, with retail stores of all sizes, in various convenient locations. Nobody forces consumers to use any one retailer – they make their own choice. So, consumers hold the power in the relationship. However, without a customer, a retail store goes out of business!
