Well Raley’s or a large local grocer would provide an elegant case study. They have substantial brand awareness and a positive image in the community yet find their sales/traffic under assault from other brands chiefly because of price on the low end and a perception of better quality on the higher end. So how then to maintain their position in light of these factors.
