The author compares Lifestyle Enterprise in High Point, North Carolina with other similar markets. According to the author, the mini market offers a casual, relaxed, consumer friendly and less rushed shopping experience. Lifestyle Enterprise consists of 400 to 600 retailers in more than 60 retail furniture showrooms. The author finds the enterprise more attractive as merchandise offered by the stores can be evaluated by visiting among themselves.
