Supermarket is a departmentalized self service store offering a wide variety of food and household merchandise.It is larger in size and has a wider selection than a simple grocery store. But it is smaller than a hypermarket.
Supermarket consist mainly meat produce,dairy and baked goods, packaged goods as well as some household goods.
It usually offers products at low price by reducing their margins. Certain products such as bread, milk, sugar are often sold as loss leaders, that is with negative margins.
At present many Supermarket chains are trying to reduce labour costs futher by shifting to self service, check out machines, where a group of four or five machines is supervised by a single assistant.
