How to use "Warehouse-store" in context?
A warehouse-store is a type of retail store, typically a large one, which sells merchandise in bulk. A warehouse-store usually relies on storage and shipping facilities in order to operate, and usually does not have a regular storefront.
Warehouses are typically distinguished from general retail stores by the degree of stocking. A store that wholesales goods to retailers, such as hardware stores and sporting goods stores, will have a higher degree of stocking, whereas a store like Walmart, which specializes in retail items, will have a lower degree of stocking.
