I believe the answer is:

wears

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'gets worn out' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'distributing wares' is the wordplay.
'distributing' is an anagram indicator.
'wares' anagrammed gives 'WEARS'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for wears that I've seen before include "Dons (clothes)", "Swear (anag.)", "Sports; erodes", "Dresses in".)
