A software store, sometimes called a computer software distributor or an information technology software store, is a company that deals with the distribution, licensing, and setup of computer software. They provide a central location from where users can obtain computer software and other information technology products at low prices. Some distributors specialize in particular software such as computer software for education, business, office, healthcare, and other industries. Others deal with all types of software and offer them at local stores, Internet outlets, conventions, fairs, and sales outlets. The number of stores providing computer software has increased over the years because software companies require a lot of software to develop and market their products.
