Supermarket loyalty is decreasing.  Just 12 per cent of shoppers claim loyalty to just one supermarket brand, with most (70 per cent) shopping across 2 – 3 different stores, a significant decrease from 22 per cent of shoppers in 2014.  This is according to a survey by Valassis Limited, the UK’s largest coupon and voucher services provider.

There is even less loyalty during the festive season, particularly among female shoppers, with just 10 per cent of women stating they would not shop away from their main regular supermarket.

Promotional offers are the deciding factor behind where the Christmas supermarket shop is done, with half of all women surveyed declaring they would switch supermarkets in order to use coupons or vouchers, although only one third of men say they are persuaded by such deals.

“Another poor August for online sales as Olympics win shoppers’ attention” / plus InternetRetailing webinars

PAUL SKELDON writes ...

The fact that online sales fell in August should come as no real surprise to anyone – it happens every year pretty much: we all go on holiday or get distracted by just living a slightly more relaxed life and the quest for things gets lost in the dunes. What is news in this month’s BRC-KPMG online shopping stats is that this was a particularly bad August.

Now, the analysts are blaming the Olympics and the great weather for the fall – it bumped in at about half the 12 month average of 11% – but could this be the beginning of the ‘readjustment’ we are likely to see post-Brexit as the world gets back to normal and the horror of that vote comes home to roost?

Research : New study finds middle-aged shoppers are the most ethical / Warwick Business School

by on May 9, 2016 in Lead Article, Lead story, News you can use, Research, Retail, Retail News, Rock 'n Roll

In a survey of supermarket consumers researchers found that young and old shoppers were less likely to purchase fairtrade and organic goods at supermarkets, with the findings going against the commonly held view that people become more ethical as they get older.

Younger shoppers talked a lot about buying ethical goods, but failed to practice what they preached, with the survey finding they recommended ethical products more than older consumers, but were less likely to purchase them.

And despite the perception that women are more ethical than men, the survey found no difference between the shopping habits of the two genders.   Warwick Business School,
