Email this page    

 

 

 

Bricks Business Model:

A company selling products from a retail location.  Customers come into the store and make purchases.  The sales transaction takes place at the retail site and the customer walks out the door with the product.

 

The bricks model is the traditional way of selling products.  It is still an effective way but it comes with high overhead cost for rental and real estate tax.

 

 

 


Examples of the Bricks Business Model
