Hypermarkets & Supermarkets and Convenience Stores grow at the expense of Food & Drink Specialists
Both Hypermarkets & Supermarkets and Convenience Stores have gained share of the sector in recent years, whilst other channels, such as “Dollar” Stores, Variety Stores & General Merchandise Retailers have shown little or no change in share. The increase in share of these two mainstream channels has however, resulted in a significant loss of share by Food & Drink Specialists.
