Retail is selling goods or items to the people who will use them, as opposed to wholesale which is selling to someone who sells to consumers.

Retailing can be done at shops and stores. This includes department stores, malls and markets where stalls or stands are set up at a cleared area.

Another way of purchasing retail items is by ordering them by mail, telephone, Internet or other methods, to be delivered by post or package delivery people. Some items are sold door-to-door, in which a sales person goes to a possible customers home and tries to sell an item.
