This is a blog about retail. And I hope that almost everyone is more or less familiar with the term blog (although you have to write one for really understand). Instead the searches that bring people to the blog, I show that the retail term is not clear. So, it's very redundant to some, I will explain once and for all what is that of retail. Retail is the English term for retail or retail. That sounds easy, but is a bit more complete and concise than this brief explanation. It includes the business sector ranging from supermarkets, through branded stores, supermarkets, shopping centers, to bank branches and in some cases restaurants (fast ej.comida). Is closely related to the chain stores, franchises, central purchasing and even some consider that online trading could go with the same brush, but I prefer to call the e-retail.
Now I think you get better as well to what I do as a Retail Consultant. My job is to advise, design strategies, analyze and recommend how to manage and improve all kinds of shops. My help can be from promote, organize, improve , innovate, plan or open outlets. But you have to be a retailer (responsible for management of outlets) to understand the many problems involved in retail management and how an external hand never hurts.

When Anton Smith applied for hourly work at a Finish Line sneaker store in Charlotte, N.C., his first hurdle was showing he had the temperament for the job.
Finish Line Inc., like many other retailers, makes applicants take a personality test before it will consider interviewing them.
