The Rise and Rise of the Supermarket Chains
With Wal-Mart on the rampage, and the US food retailing industry consolidating rapidly, there are lessons to be learned from Europe. The great Philip Kotler agrees. He wrote of the book: "I highly recpmmend this book to US readers interested in future trends in the supermarket industry. The industry is much more consolidated in Europe and our industry is relentlessly moving in the same direction. The stories will provide much inspiration for meeting and mounting the challenges ahead." The Grocers gives a history of food retailing in the UK, and looks at the rest of Europe and the USA for comparison. It tells the often dramatic and always fascinating stories of how the main UK players - Tesco, Sainsbury, Asda and Safeway got to where they are today, and looks into the future to describe what are the new competencies are that supermarkets will need to survive in an increasingly competitive world.
