Uniform Commercial Codes

1) Does article 2 of the UCC apply to the contracts between Grocery Inc and their vendors? Yes. In the scenario Grocery Inc is in contract with multiple vendors, both private (individual) and corporate vendors. Article 2 covers the sale of goods. Goods meaning that they can be moved during the time of purchase such as food products (, 2012). The UCC does not cover services like a membership, nor the sale of your home (because it can not be moved at the time of purchase). Also, not treat merchants and non merchants the same. An example of a merchant is a national grocery store and an example of a non-merchant is when your neighbor sells their vehicle. 2) Do common law contracts apply?

Yes, common law contracts also apply to the scenario. Article 2 only covers tangible items, and everything else is than governed by common law contracts. An example is Grocery Inc's contracts with vendors are covered by the UCC because the involvement of the sale, but a vendor or an individual who stocks the shelving themselves (performing a service) would be covered under common laws. Compare and Contrast: UCC and Common laws

Besides the differences mentioned above, article 2 of the UCC and how common laws are implemented are very dependent on the contract and are completely circumstantial. How does this relate to your profession?

I think both article 2 and common law are incorporated into my profession. Well, considering I work at Applebees, a national chain of restaurants, which were once corporate but transitioning strongly into franchise depend, rely, and as contracted to a very specific group of vendors, but we also have liquor reps for various liquor companies we can work with that come into the restaurant, stock their liquor based on their marketing strategy, etc.
