Shopping around: Consumers will turn to discount stores and e-tailers, stunting industry growth
Small Specialty Retail Stores in the US
Closing up shop
Despite the economy's turnaround, small specialty retail stores will have a difficult time surviving. The largely discretionary nature of the products these stores sell will continue to push budget-conscious consumers to shop at external industries, such as discount department stores and online retailers. Also, sales of tobacco, once the industry's key moneymaker, will gradually decline as consumers become more aware of the health risks associated with smoking.
Industry operators retail specialized lines of goods, such as art supplies, cigarettes and cigars, paper goods, collectors’ items, fireworks, religious merchandise and trophies. This industry also includes general merchandise auction houses, but it
excludes mass merchandisers, department stores, warehouse clubs and superstores.
