It is a proven fact that a vibrant retail sector has tremendous impact on the economy. Retail stores play a critical role in the supply chain by providing a range of goods and services efficiently. Retail stores also supply useful information across the supply chain to consumers and manufacturers. Retailers supply information to consumers through advertising and other displays while market research information gathered assist manufacturers to gain insight into consumer requirements and trends.
