•Organized Retail: Growth Projections
• Retailing is a distribution channel through which goods are sold in small quantities to the final consumer.
• A retailer is typically a reseller, who buys products from a manufacturer / supplier / distributor and sells them to the customers.
• Generally, no significant changes in characteristics of the product are brought about by retailers.
• However, a manufacturer may also be a retailer if it sells its products directly to the customers. 4
Organised retail - defined
• Organised retailing has been defined by CRISIL Research as a form of retailing
whereby consumers can buy goods from a similar purchase environment across
more than one physical location.
Scope of the research
• This research attempts to analyse the structure and outlook for the 'organised retail industry' (excluding tobacco products as they use specialised channels of delivery).
• Services like beauty salons, multiplexes, restaurants, etc. have been kept out of the purview of this definition, though they may be available at the same location (such as a mall).
• The analysis covers different store formats, including single product stores, departmental stores, cash and carry and malls.
