By John Harvey

Self stores mark their presence since 18th century rather than an invention of today. The store in those days was known by many names. The modern names of such stores are retail-outlets, shopping malls and self-service stores. The stores are made for well planned shopping. You can get in numerous things in these stores under single roof right from hair pins to cars everything. In addition to this the shopping is more convenient in these stores as they offer heavy discounts to their customers. Customers can expect more fall in prices near the festive seasons.

The stores mark their presence since 18th century, when Americans started them as warehouses to fulfill the commercial needs later on these stores were also used for personal use for storing the household items which the people could otherwise fails to accommodate in their houses. The items were dear to them they failed to store them in their premises and doesn’t even want to part with them. For such items the mini-warehouses became their homes. Later on with changing time these houses took up the form of retail outlets sheltering number of products under same roof. The customers can shop their number of needs under one roof from such stores.

The stores concentrate on the turnover of merchandise placed with them and try to stock only the moving goods. They focus on the profit margins and broaden them up by keeping the expenses low. The main area where they cut down the prices are decorations and salary of sales force team. A proper trade off is maintained between the prices and quality of the products. The customers can expect to have a great deal in their shopping experience if they buy in bulk.

Due to the above-mentioned constraint on the sales force team the stores demands that the customers approaching them should assist themselves for the shopping. Thus, the name of self-service is given to such stores. The stores are located in the outskirts of the city hence the rental expenses are decreased for such stores. The stores offer the parking facility to its customers which further make the shopping experience more convenient.

The stores realize the fact that their far-off locations demand the customers to drive to the stores. So to make the shopping experience a cherishing one for the customers these stores offer the parking facility for them. The drive in facility helps in bulk buying for the customers and they are eased by the burden of carrying their purchase to their vehicles.
