Book Description

30 Oct 1995 National Retail Federation (Book 20)
Dictionary of Retailing & Merchandising

In the notoriously fast–paced, increasingly complex world of retailing and merchandising, accurate communication is absolutely essential. Misunderstandings due to miscommunication can be very expensive, in terms of both time and money. To meet the needs of the professional community and students for an authoritative, easy–to–use source of precise definitions, noted lexicographer and professor of business Jerry M. Rosenberg has produced the Dictionary of Retailing and Merchandising.

Unsurpassed as a reference tool, the Dictionary encompasses the entire range of terms related to working in the retail industry. Here the reader will find accurate, up–to–date definitions in all areas of retailing, including buying, merchandising and visual display, catalog marketing, mail–order marketing, retail advertising, customer demographics research and consumer behavior, transactions with manufacturers and vendors, retail finance and accounting, MIS/computer/ automation, and wholesaling.

The Dictionary contains approximately 4,500 entries, which include specialized and technical definitions along with more general ones. Each word, term, and phrase is defined in all its current business contexts, with the widest usage cited first and remaining definitions listed by area of specialty. Related areas are thoroughly cross–referenced to help create a broader, more contextual understanding. A wealth of synonyms, abbreviations, and commonly used acronyms further enhance the Dictionary′s usefulness as a complete language reference source.

For the experienced professional and neophyte alike, the Dictionary of Retailing and Merchandising will serve as a handy, indispensable aid to clarity in communication.

4.0 out of 5 stars What You'd Expect 27 Oct 2000
By Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
New to the retail industry I felt this was a book that I just had to have. It is exactly what you would expect it to be. Laid out in the same format as a regular dictionary this book provides concise but sufficient definions of regularly occuring words in retailing (iceburg principal, planogram, INP etc). I as impressed that any mathamatically concepts were diagramed with the appropriate equations.
This book will not likely be of much use to someone who has been in the retail industry for any significant legth of time.
