The non-food market has been badly impacted by tough economic conditions causing many consumers to cut back on discretionary spending. Growth in non-food sales for grocers is beginning to slow. This is partly down to the difficult non food market, but also due to space growth having less of an impact on non-food sales and slowing sales densities.
Convenience has been a major driver of success for grocers in non-food and this is set to remain a key advantage that grocers need to leverage when looking for future growth. However, their convenience advantage over competitors will be eroded over time as multichannel expansion allows competitors to provide added convenience for shoppers.
Grocers must start addressing the areas in which they are weakest to build their appeal further, particularly as non-food expansion remains high on the agenda for three of the Big Four and competition is set to become more intense. Building brand authority will be fundamental to their success in a more competitive market.
