Grocery loyalty being at a low, no supermarket can afford to sit on the side-lines, especially when targeting women shoppers .. Valassis Limited

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.

The launch of Amazon’s ‘Internet of Things' Dash service could steal 20% of UK supermarket online sales, says e-commerce delivery expert ParcelHero.

Amazon is continuing its assault on the UK grocery market with the launch of its Dash service for UK Prime members. While some industry experts are predicting it will capture just 3% of the grocery market for Amazon, e-tail delivery specialists ParcelHero believe the launch of Dash could capture Amazon a 20% share of the online market by 2020 – and could even spell doom for one supermarket chain.

Sainsbury’s is currently reviewing its UK ad account with AMV BBDO, after a 40-year tenure (with a brief interregnum at M&C Saatchi), the first such review for 11 years
