retail

Rfv-sense: adjective. Was speedily deleted by an IP, then added back. Also, I don't see how the adverb would work, but I'm not rfving that as I don't even understand it. Mglovesfun (talk) 23:50, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

I've added cites. DCDuring TALK 10:44, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Lovely. --Mglovesfun (talk) 11:08, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
The second and third cite do not seem to have much to do with the definition "relating to the sale of goods or services directly to individual consumers". Are we missing a sense or two? --Hekaheka 21:21, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes I jumped the gun a bit. Even if you accept any citations beginning with 'very' as adjectival, only the first one of these three supports, or unambiguously supports the definition. --Mglovesfun (talk) 08:44, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
I've tweaked the def. I say this passes now. - -sche (discuss) 05:14, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
