Retail Marketing: the Case of Nespresso

...NESPRESSO AND ITS STORES - SYNOPSIS RETAIL MARKETING HA – E125 Autumn 2012 Cpr n° 051092-3138 Cpr n° 270790-4162 Copenhagen Business School PURPOSE STATEMENT This synopsis will present some problems related to the brand Nespresso and more specifically concerning its store management. We will focus on issues associated on store layout, design and visual merchandising. Nowadays, Nespresso highlights its boutiques while they were not integrated in the initial business model of Nespresso. Indeed, they have only been created in 2002 in order to address customers’ needs.

First we will present briefly the brand Nespresso and its products. Thus we will approach its positioning and channels of distribution in order to introduce the store concept and design of Nespresso. Finally we will deal with theories related to our problem statement: the store design and atmosphere in Nespresso boutiques and the SOR model.

Over the last decade, American Eagle and Abercrombie and Fitch have been two of the main clothing retailers competing for the affection of young adult shoppers, specifically within the teen-college age range of 18-22 years. While both companies carry a similar assortment of clothing apparel and try to cater to the same demographic, each company’s retail strategy does differ in various ways. A retail strategy is defined as the way in which a firm plans to focus its resources to accomplish its objectives. Being that both companies have the same target market and nature of merchandise, they both attempt to look for ways to gain a competitive advantage through their retail strategies. One main difference in their strategies is that American Eagle attempts to gain an advantage by selling their products at lower prices. By offering apparel that is equivalent to that of Abercrombie and selling it at a cheaper price they are able to attract the consumer who is looking to save money. On the other hand, Abercrombie keeps their prices a little bit higher to give off the appearance of higher quality in hopes to attract the consumer who looks to buy name brand, higher end clothing. Moreover, though it is incredibly important to gain a competitive advantage over other retailers in your market, it is even more crucial to sustain that advantage. Abercrombie has positioned itself strictly within the market of 18-22 year olds;......

...RETAIL MARKETING SINAV SORULARI 7. 1) Intensive Distribution: Intensive distribution aims to provide saturation coverage of the market by using all available outlets. For many products, total sales are directly linked to the number of outlets used (e.g., cigarettes, beer). Intensive distribution is usually required where customers have a range of acceptable brands to choose from. In other words, if one brand is not available, a customer will simply choose another. This alternative involves all the possible outlets that can be used to distribute the product. This is particularly useful in products like soft drinks where distribution is a key success factor. Here, soft drink firms distribute their brands through multiple outlets to ensure their easy availability to the customer. Hence, on the one hand these brands are available in restaurants and five star hotels and on the other hand they are also available through countless soft drink stalls, kiosks, sweetmarts, tea shops, and so on. Any possible outlet where the customer is expected to visit is also an outlet for the soft drink. 2) Selective Distribution: Selective distribution involves a producer using a limited number of outlets in a geographical area to sell products. An advantage of this approach is that the producer can choose the most appropriate or best-performing outlets and focus effort (e.g., training) on them. Selective distribution works best when consumers are prepared to “shop around” – in......

In India 98% of the retail sector consists of counter-stores and street-vendors.1 With no large players, inadequate infrastructure and a small affording population that believed in saving rather than spending, Indian retail never attracted the interest of large corporations. That was till they realized that retail in India is a USD 320 billion dollar industry, growing at CAGR 5% and contributing to 39% of the GDP2 (See exhibit 1 for projected market size of retail in India.). It might seem almost nonsensical that this important sector of the country’s economy has been overlooked by corporate giants. One cannot blame them though. Indian retail has been a traditionally unorganized sector, dominated by counter-stores and street vendors (See Exhibits 2 and 3 for pictures). While retail employs a large sector of the population, most of these people are uneducated, unskilled individuals that regard retail as the preferred career alternative to agriculture. They never had the means nor will to develop the sector or expand their business. Retail never enjoyed the support of the Indian consumer. A miserly population that barely had the means to make end meet never treated shopping as a form of leisure. While individual retailers saw small gains, lack of......
