During the industrialization, there was a breakdown in the wholesale and retail. Does anyone know the reasons? Or is the only reason that the cities "exploded" and should be clearer by the enormous growth of the trade? Can anyone offer a detailed explanation to me? Thank you in advance.
The best answer
less the exploding cities are likely to have been the reason, but the rapidly increasing number of produced goods and production speed. It as more storage capacity is needed and also the variety of produced goods could even be sold without wholesalers a lot of effort to retailers in smaller quantities. Theoretically, it would of course also without wholesalers go- Metro Group's as a good example of a combination of wholesalers and retailers.
