Value Chain Stage: Retail

The retail sales channel is used when the final product is sold to the final consumer. This can occur in traditional retail channels such as department stores, specialty stores, or discount retailers, or it can occur through e-commerce sales. The specific type of retail outlet depends on the nature of the final product.
