a type of shop - questa azienda ha 61 corner in totale in Italia. it's contrasted with a negozio monomarca.
roger
shop within a shop
Explanation:
Basically it's when you go to a department store for instance and they have departments of famous labels, as opposed to things like Body Shop or Laura Ashley or Benetton who only sell their own stuff and only sell in in their own stores.
It is not the same as an "espositore" or display unit with the company's products on it.

To have a corner on the market...


Explanation:
significa avere una posizione in cui si controlla tutta la fornitura di un particolare tipo di merci.

Ma per esempio "corner franchising" l'eurodic. lo lascia tale e quale anche in Italiano.

il contesto è un po' misero, e quindi non so se si tratta di franchising o meno.

Punti di vendita in esclusiva?

espositori


Explanation:
Probabilmente si tratta di espositori di vendita, ovvero un angolo dedicato negli scaffali di un negozio/supermercato o altro tipo di punto vendita, per contrasto con i negozi interamente dedicata alla marca/prodotto.

Se si tratta di questo si chiamano 'espositori'

corner=corner


Explanation:
ooops! non mi ero accorto che la domanda era dall'italiano all'inglese.

In tal caso, perche' non lasciare 'corner' che e' gia' in inglese ed e' stato probabilmente adottato dal gergo del marketing e distribuzione commerciale?
