Food and beverages

Declining disposable income and high levels of unemployment in 2010 led to an overall halt in frivolous spending. Households, therefore, focused their spending on consumables, such as food and beverages. Over the past five years, this trend has benefited the industry and this product segment in particular, as households flocked to warehouse clubs and supercentres to take advantage of discounted prices for consumables. In 2014, this segment is expected to make up the largest product segment, accounting for 48.0% of total revenue.

What is the Warehouse Clubs & Supercentres Industry?

This industry is made up of large stores that primarily retail a general line of grocery products and merchandise items (e.g. apparel). Warehouse clubs offer customers a wide selection of merchandise (often in bulk), at discounted prices, in exchange for a membership fee that is paid by each customer. Supercentres are large discount department stores that also sell perishable groceries. Unlike warehouse clubs, however, supercentres do not have eligibility requirements for customers.
