Selling and buying are almost a day to day activity done by customers and merchants. The selling operations come in different place and in different forms since merchants find many ways just to deliver their products to the consumers.
Selling different products to the consumers can be done in many ways. Merchants can sell their products by selling the items in stores, by selling the items in the market stalls, through house to house selling, or selling the items in traveling stores also called as stores on wheels.
Stores are usually located in either commercial or residential centers. These include the supermarkets, bazaars, groceries, snack shops, services centers and other general merchandising stores. These stores are commonly found strategically in the places and communities where the people usually shops for different goods.
Selling products in this retail through these stores is beneficial to the consumers since they don’t have to go directly to the manufacturers or to the wholesalers to purchase the items. Different items are readily available in same places and time making it easier for the consumers to do shopping.
Market stalls are those lines of stalls that usually sell varied products such as different dry goods, raw foods such as fishes as well as meat and poultry products. It is usually divide into two; the wet market and the dry market. The wet market is where we purchase the meats, fishes, vegetable and other wet products. On the other hand, the dry market is where we buy or purchase different dry goods such as the clothing, schools supplies, and other dry products.
The house to house selling is done directly in the houses of different customers. The merchant usually hand carried their products if they are portable or the items are placed in carts. Oftentimes, these merchants just bring their modules where the pictures or images of their products are into.
Another selling activity is done through the way of traveling stores or sometimes called as stores caravan. Store caravans are almost the same with the house to house selling strategy but only differ from some manners. One of the differences of this kind as compared to the house to house selling is that it carries a wide variety of merchandise and it usually sells only in the streets on a particular community rather than going into a house to house selling operation. However, store caravans and house to house selling sometimes come together.
