Cleanup[edit]

I'm trying to clean up a few things in this article. I wrote my PhD on retailing, and hope to make some of the distinctions here more in line with the scholarly literature. I apologize if I stepped on anybody's toes in my editing, I'm a Wikipedia novice. --Nicolo Machiavelli 11:52, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

--61.246.184.138 (talk) 09:43, 30 March 2014 (UTC)== Technology == Retail is a huge sector with low margin. However, the technology or the retail software is usually not (relatively). This is a very informative page growing to be conclusive, hopefully. However, to me, the article, conspicuously lacks the technology aspect of it. Retail software sector is huge and has great growth opportunity, especially in the developing countries. It would be great if someone can add a section for software (my personal interest) and technology, or atleast some links to it ~ Miles (23 April 2008, 3:37 PM CST) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 148.87.1.172 (talk) 20:38, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

I found this following statement in the first paragraph of this article -

"Online retailing, also known as e-commerce is the latest form of non-shop retailing"

This is not true. eCommerce has various types - B2C, B2B, G2B, etc. Online Retailing only represents the B2C part of eCommerce.Dheerajakula (talk) 18:42, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Corrected this statement on the article Dheeraj Akula (talk) 06:33, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

Variation by Country[edit]

There seemed to be a focus on large western retailers, so I have added some information on the rest of the world, and I'd like to see more on small retailing. Kim9988 (talk) 05:04, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

'Retail' in Dutch[edit]

In the Etymology section, the statement that ´retail´ means the same in Dutch, is partially true, but it is only known as a loan word. The overall used term is ´detail[handel]' ('handel' meaning trade). Can this be added?

adding relevance to the Gastronomy in Singapore (poll)[edit]

Raysonho removed my addition of the Gastronomy in Singapore template from this article without any comments. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Types_of_restaurant&action=edit&section=7

Let's do a quick poll to KEEP/REMOVE this detail on this article?

KEEP I think because the article has already a list of restaurants as a template it's a good thing having an article about

the Gastronomy in Singapore. --huggi - never stop exploring (talk) 09:05, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

REMOVE; as with Supermarket (but more so), this article is too general to support a navbox for every tangentially related specific topic. --Junkyardsparkle (talk) 16:28, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
