Stores are used to define store locations, sub-store locations or inventory locations. Store(s) are assigned to specific terminals(s)in order to identify the terminal's physical location.
Here you would typically list all your stores. For example, if you have a Miami Candy store that has a cafe in it and a New York candy store that does not. You could have the following structure.
- NY Store (Parent)
- Candy Section
- Cafe Section
- NY Store
By doing it like this, you can perform better reporting and also segregate your products for each group of terminals.
