    At/in retail and wholesale

    Hello.
    Should I use ''at'' or ''in'' before ''wholesale'' and ''retail?''

    For example, ''They prefer to buy items at/in wholesale, at/in retail.''

    You can say "at wholesale" with the understanding that the word "prices" is being omitted. Or, just use "buy wholesale."

    Neither needs a preposition of any kind when used as adverbs. The phrases are buy/sell something wholesale/retail.

    I see. I will not use reverso.net again. I could only find one example of ''at retail'' on another website. ''At retail, it has sales of 177.6m''.
