Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Corner Stores Disappear By JOHN CUNNII'F AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) Tlio storc-to-people ratio is falling sharply in the American mer- chandising world. In 1958 there was one retail store for every 97 Americans. By 1903, customers had to con- tent themselves with a ratio of one per 110. And now there is only one store for every 121 per- sons. The change is illustrated by the development of larger de- partment and discount stores, supermarkets that sell many products that once were the sta- ples of hardware or drug stores, and large drive-in restaurants in place-of "diners." Most, noticeable by their de- clining numbers are the old mom-and-pop stores that used to sell groceries or candy or newspapers. Now their businos lias been swallowed by large units, many of them belonging to chain stores. The trend may also be de lecUxi, consumer affairs observ ers say, by a decline in courte- sies and services and persona attentions that once were take; for granted. Larger units don' encourage familiarity. Audits and a largi market research organization keeps close watch on the trenc and reports that the process o attrition is intensifying. Las year stores disappeared bringing the five-year toll ti Retail units tins year tola says the organization compared with in 196 and in 1905.

Get more out of life Take the family to a movie tunilies lo buy goods, but Ihey mean there are fewer outlets to choose from. General mer- chandise stores offering vast ar- rays of goods show the grealesl gains of all. The census shows Uiere now arc full-line discount stores in the U.S., compared with in 19CG. In the same time the number of department stores rose to from The biggest loser of any cate- gory is Hie food group, which suffered a k'ss of stores in one year, bringing the total down lo units. Super- markets are the reason. And the oldtime drug store, selling only medication and rrobably ice cream, sodas and cosmetics, is in a slow but steady decline. The trend now is to fewer but larger stores with wider merchandise selections. The trend to bigness is not always accompanied by an in- crease in the number of sales personnel. Many of the new and larger stores rely on an increas- ing amount of self service, and not always successfully.
