Focus on Convenience Retail
June 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Convenience market in Scotland is an important channel and part of the overall retail landscape and has always had a greater share of spend than in other regions of GB. In recent times we have seen the development of the channel with the arrival of the major mults but the core of the channel still exists with independent retailers and convenience chains anchoring the sector.
With expertise from IGD, The Knowledge Bank will take a look at the channel in Scotland and compare and contrast it to the rest of the UK looking at its scope and structure, the strategic importance of getting the right range and product to meet shopper needs and missions, the role of small store dynamics and the importance of category mix. We’ll also take a look at the route to market and what the implications and opportunities are to succeed in this channel.
Along with Patrick Mitchell-Fox from IGD we’ll also hear from Jamie Buchanan from the Scottish Grocers Federation who will provide a first hand account of Scottish convenience retailing in action.
