    Is it ever correct to use the noun area to modify another noun as in "Area retailer," or should it be "local retailer?

    area retailer however probably would be better as local retailer if that is your meaning

    You can use modifying nouns in this way [thought it would not be usual with "retailer"].

    District manager
    Area manager

    BUT

    Regional manager
    Local manager
