Each of boxes contains actual items and when the brands need to be extended or some boxes are needed to be replaced, they are evacuated from the core.The propagation of the brands starts from the core in center. It provides, not only the supplying of the boxes but also structure and overall circulation. And items are also archived in storages in a center and evacuated between the slabs. Since the changing of market sharing per year is little, so, after first propagation, space is stabilized.
