Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Alexis DeSalva, a leading analyst in the Retail & Apparel sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Nearly all consumers shop mass merchandisers and growth is expected to continue, but loyalty is generally low among mass shoppers, even among some of those who shop the channel the most frequently. As pressure increases from competition outside the channel, mass merchandisers need to address evolving consumer expectations in order to stay relevant. Retailers should leverage their private label brands and continue to offer convenient and flexible shopping options both online and off-line to stay relevant and foster more loyalty among shoppers.
