Mass Merchandisers Industry Overview

Consumers continue to gravitate toward shopping in-store with mass merchandisers (91%) and supplementing those trips with online purchases (69%). Shopping in-store is an easier way for consumers to purchase a multitude of products and explore new offerings from the retailer as they do so. That said, mass merchandisers’ online and offline channels are both essential in helping consumers craft the experience that’s most convenient and enjoyable for them; highlighting the importance of ensuring both options work together seamlessly.

Mass Merchandisers Industry Trends, Opportunities and Challenges

While the mass merchandiser industry enjoyed elevated sales over the last couple of years as value-conscious consumers consolidated their shopping trips to purchase all that they need in one swoop, that behavior is slowly changing to a degree. Consumers are branching back out to specialty stores and other retailers to shop around for the best price and quality for the items they want. Mass merchandisers are likely to see more competition in the coming years as this shift occurs.

One of the biggest opportunities for mass merchandisers is to continue elevating the shopping experience. Whether through advertising that breaks through, in-person experiences or innovative shopping options (eg text a personal shopper), mass merchandisers can be a leader in the category and help shape what the retail environment looks like moving forward.
