French term or phrase: retail: corner, concession, stand
I'm not sure whether these terms remain the same in English. This is about a luxury brand's points of sale in a department store: "Ce corner change egalement de statut: il devient une concession. Nous louons cet espace et controlons desormais les achats, la politique commerciale, l'image, l'assortiment et les remises accordees lors des soldes. Nous conservons nos deux autres points de vente au rez-de-chausee du magasin: un stand foulards et un espace privilegie au sein de la boutique japonaise X, qui vend nos accessoires duty-free." (Would "counter" be better than "stand"?) Thanks! Karen

all three terms are the same in English
Explanation:
corner came from corner shop, meaning and independant seller
concession, is the kind of outlet, usually inside a larger departement which has a degree of independence but sells only the products from that trade mark
stand stands for the smaller place, inside a store that belongs to the trade mark, employing all personnel as staff. Or it can also be the name used for the exhibit at a fair/show.

I hope my English is still understandable tonight, sorry.

Good luck!

It certainly seems that way (though I don't see "retail").


Explanation:
"Stand" is fine in the context of a fair but you're right, it would be a counter in a department store. And concession is the same thing in both languages.
