WHAT IS A GENERAL DEALER:
In Australia, Canada and the United States, a store named or subtitled “general dealer” is traditionally a retailer located in a small town or in a rural area. It carries a broad selection of merchandise crammed into a relatively small space where people from the town and surrounding rural areas come to purchase all their general goods.
In the United Kingdom, similar retailers tend to be referred to as a village shop in rural areas or a corner shop in urban areas or suburbs.
General dealers often sell staple food items such as milk and bread, and various household goods such as hardware and electrical supplies.
The concept of the general dealer is very old, and although some still exist, there are far fewer than there once were due to urbanisation.
