Gone are the days when retailers could charge any amount, without worrying about what another store in another part of the city was charging. In this situation, the seller attracts prospective customers via different ‘community online stores’ or via their website and once the deal is closed, they ask the distributor to ship the product directly to the consumer.
In these highly competitive times, retailers are embracing aesthetics and design with renewed emphasis. Online stores tend to provide comprehensive descriptions of potential purchases that go well beyond what is printed on the items’ boxes or that a less than knowledgeable store employee may be able to provide.
