On the programme this week: the Aldi effect, store displays and Europe.
One result of the credit crunch has been the so-called ‘Aldi Effect’ – shorthand for the tendency of customers to trade down to low-cost retailers as money gets tight.
This week on the programme we’ll find out whether the ‘Aldi Effect’ is real, and hear some of the secrets of the discount shops.
We’ll also chat about something that’s key in many other businesses besides supermarkets: store displays. How do you get prime territory – and how do companies control how their products will appear on the shelves? The panel will also discuss the challenges of doing business in Europe.
This is the last in the series – but we’ll be back in January.
