Shoppers Have ‘lost trust’ in Pricing -Morrisons Chairman
Accenture Predicts Holiday Cheer for Retailers – Study
|This past week, The Promotion Optimization Institute POI with TABS Group, and Progressive Grocer over 175 attendees at our Webinar learned why Shoppers increased their search for deals across multiple retailers, but the lack of quality deals in the consumables sector contributed to weakness in sales. Among specific deal tactics, participation increased only in rebates and comparison shopping.Shoppers cited many of the deals as being not worth the effort and/or time.In addition, the only type of outlet that had a big increase in consumable purchases was dollar stores—up 23%. The survey found a shift of consumables shopping to smaller format channels also including drug stores and C-stores. The lack of the everyday low price deal has been inhibiting consumables sales at grocery stores.If you missed it, you’ll have an opportunity to download the recording, and complete results.If you cannot wait, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy/link to the recorded webinar. Your next three opportunities will not be recorded. Celebrate Columbus Day now, and choose to discover bold new ways to achieve your price/promotion optimization goals, and register now for the POI Fall Summit! The advanced agenda is complete with presentations on TPM, TPO, Digital Transformation,Offer Innovation, and Global Execution. Detailed successes presented by Dannon, Energizer, PepsiCo, Food Lion, Nestle Waters, 7-Eleven, Gartner, Tyson, AAFES, and more will provide necessary takeaways for the 250 in attendance.
