Retail formats and theories

  1. 1. RETAIL FORMATS AND THEORIES
  2. 2. EVOLUTION OF RETAIL FORMATS SOME FACTS  The first department stores “Bon Marche” was set up in 1852 in Paris  Bon Marche revolutionized retail at time by relying on volume rather than on high mark up.  Success of Bon Marche led to other department stores coming up in Europe and America
  3. 3. EVOLUTION OF RETAIL FORMATS Some Facts…..  The first chain store was  A&P (Atlantic & Pacific)-a grocery store founded in 1859 by George F Gilman  The world witnessed the new form of retail when Montgomery Ward launched the first mail order catalogue in 1870  Another important chain store was F W Woolworth, set up in 1879
  4. 4. EVOLUTION OF RETAIL FORMATS Emergence of Self service  Retail evolved in many ways over the twentieth century  Self service as a concept started in 1916 when Clarence Saunders started their first self-service store “Piggly Wiggly” in Memphis, Tennessee  The concept of self-service helped the retailer reduce costs, as fewer workers were required to service the customers
  5. 5. EVOLUTION OF RETAIL FORMATS Supermarkets  1930’s saw the emergence of supermarkets  The first hypermarket that as developed was Carrefour in France, in 1963  New formats gave an opportunity to pick up products, compare with others and then taking a decision of buying  Providing all information regarding price, weight, date of manufacture and expiry on the product itself became necessary to aid decision making
  6. 6. EVOLUTION OF RETAIL FORMATS Supermarkets and Hypermarkets…  The mass merchandisers worked on three principles, which have now become the fundamental principles of modern selling 1. They fixed product prices before sale, and customers bought at the set prices 2. Prices were determined on the basis of stock turns and the amount of profit that would be generated from the product 3. They departmentalized the products. Accounting systems were devised to determine the contribution of various departments. This enabled them to drop unprofitable goods
  7. 7. EVOLUTION OF RETAIL FORMATS Specialty Stores, Malls and Other Formats  The needs of the customers grew and changed  This ensured the emergence of commodity specialized mass merchandisers in 1970s  Seventies also saw the use of technology by way of introduction of the “barcode”  Specialty chains developed I the 1980s as did the large shopping malls  Shopping malls were created o provide for all of he consumer’s needs in a single self contained shopping area
  8. 8. EVOLUTION OF RETAIL FORMATS Rise of the Web  The world of retail changed yet again when in 1995, Amazon. Com opened its doors to a world wide market on the web  Evolution of retail formats worldwide has been largely influenced by a constantly changing social and economic landscape  One of the main reasons for new formats emerging is the consumer himself  Today's consumer is more demanding and is focused on what he wants  Retailer on the other hand has been influenced by availability of real estate and its increasing prices  He is faced with the challenge of adding on new services and the need for differentiation  This has led to specialization and the emergence of specialists  Supply chain complexities and increasing pressure on margins has also forced the retailers to look at new formats
  9. 9. THEORIES OF RETAIL DEVELOPMENT These theories revolve around: • Importance of competitive pressures • The investments in organizational capabilities and • Creation of a sustainable competitive advantage. These are developed to explain the process of retail development: 1. Environmental Theory 2. Cyclical Theory 3. Conflictual Theory

CYCLICAL THEORY Mature retailer Top Heavy Conservative Declining ROI Innovative retailer Low status and price Minimum service Poor facilities Limited product offering Traditional retailer Elaborate facilities Higher rent More locations Higher prices Extended product offerings VulnerabilityPhase EntryPhase Trading up Phase A. Wheel of Retailing- described by McNair
  12. 12. CYCLICAL THEORY….. B. ACCORDIAN THEORY: Hollander used analogy of an orchestra. Open accordions Closed Accordions.
  13. 13. CONFLICTUAL THEORY Department Stores Individual retailers Hypermarkets and Supermarkets Anti-thesis Thesis Synthesis Retailing evolves through blending of two opposites to create a new format.
