own store/shop channel/chain

canal does mean channel (cadena would be chain). You could even add a retail too. Not sure which word would be best for your context, but I think that "own store/shop" is fine.

Apple Is Mulling Own Store Chain to Expand Sales"
Wall Street Journal (09/29/00) P. B1; Tam, Pui-Wing; McWilliams, Gary
Apple Computer might open a chain of retail stores that could help the company increase sales, sources close to the company's executives say. Although Apple officials offered no comment, speculation is rife within the industry that Apple wants to emulate the success of Gateway's Gateway Country stores, which analysts credit for causing that company's recent profit upswing. In fact, Apple has been trying to hire experienced retail staff away from Gateway, Gateway CEO Jeffrey Weitzen claims. Apple has also hired retail-management experts who have worked with Sony and Target. The possibility of Apple-branded stores seemed even more likely after yesterday, when the PC maker told investors to expect lower quarterly revenue and profit. Analysts say Apple stores would improve the company's distribution, widely regarded as its weakest business link. Apple products are available from a few electronics chains, computer dealers, and the company's own Web site, but its market presence pales compared to other major PC makers. The Apple stores would likely be showrooms for its products and would have few items in stock, sources say. However, the stores risk alienating the company's traditional retailers. One Apple reseller told the Wall Street Journal, "Many of us are already under severe margin pressure and Apple's stores could erode this further."
