exactly. Wholesale is a different story. Discount shops do not sell huge
packings / wholesale confections with many boxes inside. They might sell
slightly bigger packages (often made on purpose for them, not available in
other supermarkets), like 1,75l  lemonade instead of 1/1,5l lemonade, or
500gr cornflakes instead of 375gr cornflakes, but you will not find 4000gr

Generally, small selection, simple presentation (besides pallets, they use
different shelves, e.g. shelves with 2 boards instead of 5-7 boards,
because they put boxes upon boxes in the shelves and sell out of the boxes,
rather than placing products in the shelves individually).
