New types of retailing frequently start off with crude facilities, little prestige, and a reputation for cutting prices and margins. As they mature, they often acquire more expensive buildings, provide more elaborate services, impose higher margins, and become vulnerable to new competition. The author examines the history of numerous retail institutions to determine if this process really constitutes a "natural law of retailing."
