THE BIG SQUEEZE

PRICES / MERCH COSTS

CAPITAL EXPENDITURE • 47% will increase cap ex • 25% will decrease cap ex • More diversity in investments • 71% will increase selling space

RETAIL TRENDS

NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK • New players bring – new concepts, business practices – I.T., investment – strong capital base, low overheads • Online • HQ consolidation – Fewer decision-makers in Canada

FEWER & BIGGER • Bipolar customer • Share moving to larger competitors • Mass merchants, big boxes, specialists • Selling to / competing with fewer, more powerful retailers

RETAIL RULES • Power of retail brands • Aggregator of demand • Private label • Vertical integration • “Coopetition” – Music example

BRAVE NEW WORLD • Truly international • Canada lags • Customer-driven, not tech-driven • Omni-channel, but customer shops differently • All about price / complete price transparency
