    Hi Vibhor,

    Please use below link for best practices detail for Retail.

    This preconfigured, rapid-deployment solution improves insight into customer's buying behavior and provides the base for your digital transformation. For most retailers store sales is still the biggest source for these insights, so the collection of point-of-sale (POS) transaction data from connected stores and the processing of this data is the key. Other customer sales transactions are coming from SAP S/4HANA Retail and together with the POS data build a consolidated and unified view on customer activities.

      The link you have shared is best practice for CAR and its integration with S/4HANA. It doesn't have any best practice guide for retail process for S/4 HANA therefore not much helpful.
