Part of this thesis is an attempt to explain briefly the circumstances which gave rise to the concept of self-service, and accelerated its development to the point of revolutionizing the entire field of distribution in the short period of a quarter-century. Food super markets are the most important segment in the American economy; thus, the writer focused his research mainly in this field. Self-service is still the heart of the super market, and, therefore, the reader should note that most of the principles applied here should also apply in non-food self-service stores.
