What is General Merchandise?

There is a variety of general merchandise globally, most of which we frequently visit daily. The meaning of general merchandise refers to a retailer that sells various products for general public use except for grocery and food products. These are called general merchandise stores. They mainly focused on non-perishable items. Although general merchandise retailers previously sold all goods except for groceries, that has changed since one can buy products such as milk and bread from Walgreens, Walmart, and Target. However, the main characteristics of general merchandise stores include:

  • They sell their products or services from a single point location.
  • They are capable of retailing a variety of products in their stores.
  • They have the required staff and equipment to handle large sales.

Most general merchandise stores constitute a point of sale establishment run by various personnel such as cashiers, store attendants, managers, and accountants. They also use various equipment such as POS systems and display shelves to handle huge sales.

In years past, in pre-Walmart days, many towns had a general store.

Classification of Merchandise in Retail

The term retail is not entirely new to most people. It refers to a business that focuses on selling services or products at a small scale to consumers for personal benefit. It is the opposite of wholesale, which purchases and sells products on a large scale. A retailer’s main purpose is to sell products to consumers from a single direct point. There are two main types of retailers:

  • General merchandise stores: sell available products mainly for general use, some with the addition of food products and groceries.
  • Non-store retail formats: involve retailers that sell their products indirectly without a physical store but utilize online platforms.

Retailers are considered the final links of a distribution chain. General merchandise retailers make up the largest percentage of retailers. Specialty stores and discount stores are the main types of general merchandise retailers. However, it is becoming more challenging to categorize retail stores since grocery stores now have pharmacies, drug stores carry groceries, and full-line discount stores contain pharmacies. The distinction differentiating between the categories of stores has become blurred since consumers prefer one-stop shopping stores.

Department Stores

Department stores are the most common type of retailer to sell various products on a large scale under one roof. As the name alludes, they consist of various departments specializing in selling particular products. Some of the characteristics of department stores include:

  • They are divided into different departments, each with unique products.
  • They have a wide line of products with the availability of all goods.
  • They have centralized management that focuses on activities such as employment and advertising.

There are a variety of department stores, all of which specialize in selling various products such as:

  • Discount stores: retail chains that offer cheaper products compared to the market price. For example, Walmart sells various products, from food and non-food products.
  • Outlet stores: single manufacturer stores with various products of the same brand, such as Nike. Most outlet stores sell non-food products and mainly specialize in fashion.
  • Category-specific stores: sell various goods of the same category. For example, Toys “R” Us sells children’s products from toys, baby foods, and child-friendly groceries.

Most department stores have expanded their operations and services to cater to the ever-changing advancements. For example, the advancements in technology have allowed most stores to offer online shopping services, and some also self-checkout services due to artificial intelligence.

Full Line Discount Stores

Retailers that sell various brand products at subsidized costs are known as full-line discount stores. Their primary purpose is to generate as many sales as possible by selling their products at lower prices. Some of the characteristics of these retailers include:

  • Discounted prices of commodities. They offer subsidized prices on everything they sell, and consumers may benefit from more significant discounts if they are shopping in bulk.
  • No customer service. Consumers are expected to guide themselves and choose their products using the labels and directory for guidance. However, consumers get assistance with the billing and packing of goods.
  • A variety of different products in one place. Consumers are ensured to have a variety of brand products in which they can choose from their preferred preferences.

Full-line discount stores sell almost everything available on the market, ranging from groceries, clothing, shoes, food items, and home appliances, all under one roof. Some of the common examples of full-line discount stores include Walmart and Target.

    They have by far the best product selection to offer and the best prices in the industry! Recently found them and will be a loyal customer I’m sure for years to come! The 4,5 hour drive is definitely worth it, but if I don’t feel like driving I have the option to get my pallets shipped which is a convenience most suppliers do not offer, Overall, I love this place.
