Competition Rises as discount Grocery Stores such as Aldi and Lidl hold Consumer Retention

This year has been a triumphant year for Aldi and Lidl in the 9 million grocery trade. Their discount prices have created major price wars, increasing competition in the trade.

In February 2013 Tesco was at a high, reporting sales in Ireland of €3.15 billion (including non-grocery, such as petrol). However in the third quarter sales slipped by 8.1%, and a price war began. Tesco introduced its ‘price promise’, to match or beat prices from Aldi and Lidl, or refund the difference of up to €10 with a customer’s next Tesco shop.

Over 2013 Aldi’s discount prices attracted many consumers, increasing its market share by 20% and due to this the store now holds fourth spot, with 7.4% of the market.

The grocer trade is to see major price wars through 2014, as many key players aim to achieve greater market share.
