A retailer is a person or business that sells goods to the public usually in relatively small quantities for personal use or consumption. Retail markets and shops have a very ancient history, dating back to antiquity. Modern retailers now offer support services that may include the provision of credit, delivery services, advisory services, stylist services and a range of other supporting services.
