SATURATION AND INTERNATIONALIZATION: THE FUTURE OF GROCERY RETAILING IN THE UK

Publication date: 1 March 1992

Abstract

Explores the future development of the “big five” UK grocery retailers and their response to the challenges of the next decade. Presents the results of a survey of manufacturers, analysts and retailers, in which saturation and internationalization are the key themes. Recounts how UK grocery retailers have not been in the forefront of international retail activity – both non‐food UK retailers, and continental European food retailers, have established stronger international profiles. Suggests that the prospect of a saturated UK grocery market faces the “big five”, and addresses the question: when will opportunities in the UK become marginal, and how will retailers react to that prospect?
