Top General Merchandise Products

Many people are unfamiliar with the term general merchandise, and yet this is an essential business and consumer term that we should all know. General merchandise is anything that not sold in the Grocery section of the store - that means the general merchandise list would exclude products like alcohol, but it also excludes the following products: health and beauty, online purchases, tickets, gift cards, prescriptions and baby diapers.
All these non-food items make up a large part of daily consumer purchases as well as being the predominant products in shops like Wal-Mart, Home Depot and so on...it's important to have a clear sense of what they are.
