This model has lower bargaining power over the upstream, and profits are concentrated in the upstream. This model will also face great challenges in the future.
The terminal operation model focuses on providing services, and relies on the increase in the number of members and the internal growth of consumer product categories to achieve expansion. The essence of this business lies in the operation of members. The stores are mainly direct-operated and relatively cautious in expansion.
