After providing an overlook of the national trends, the characteristic features of retail trade in Komárno are introduced. Those economic processes which are pointed out have initiated fundamental changes in the retail trade of this gateway town in southern Slovakia. In the second part of the paper, the authors introduce the results of the field research carried out on two sets of samples with 300 respondents each.
