Even up market Waitrose have their own farms and therefore their margins are higher than the likes of Sainsbury's, Tesco and Asda. In the past few years I have popped into Aldi ad Lidl quite a few times and came out with out buying a single thing. When looking at the packaging at Aldi and Lidl even my young son says the products look too sweet and sickly. One other thing when it comes to Morrison's they have the greatest percentage number of Free hold shops then Sainsbury's, Tesco or Asda. I understand that Morrison's free holds are double that of Sainsbury's.

They need to be lean top to bottom in order to survive. Even when that is done their cost base will still be higher than the discounters. I guess it boils down to what percentage of the public are prepared to pay a premium for the additional choice and other benefits you get over the discounters. Personally I am, I tend to buy branded products and most of what i buy the discounters don't sell so I will probably never do my weekly shop there.

The problem that many of the retailers have, including the likes of Sainsbury's and Tesco's there are to many middle men that take their cut. I seems to me that Morrison's are doing the right thing by taking more and more of their grocery supplies in house and thereby cutting out all the middle men which therefore will help their profits increase.

A few years ago I read a report saying by 2020 the combined market share of Aldi and Lidl will be 15%. Currently, Aldi and Lidl are growing their market share by 1% per year, which means in the next 3 years they will grow their market share by 3% and therefore by 2020 will be at or around the 15%.

Lidl reaches 700 stores in UK expansion drive: Lidl, which has just set out plans for a one million square foot warehouse in Luton, has now opened a further five stores taking its total in the UK to 700. The new stores in Edinburgh, Stockton, Hull, Polegate and Rosehill, form part of an accelerated period of expansion for Lidl, which sees the supermarket set to open up to 19 new stores over an eight week period. The new Luton regional distribution centre will serve the London area and will be the supermarket’s biggest warehouse to date, at double the size of any of its other warehouses in the UK. There are plans for a further five warehouses already in the pipeline. Lidl plans to invest £1.45bn in the UK in 2018, including more than 50 new stores and regeneration of 30 existing stores in 2018. Ingo Fischer, Lidl UK board director for expansion and development, said: “As the UK’s fastest growing supermarket, surpassing 700 stores is yet further proof of our ambitious rate of expansion across Britain.”

Bretailer Aldi was rated the favourite in-store supermarket by the Which? poll. Its special offers rated well, as did the quality of its fresh and own-label products and the ease of finding items on its shelves. Marks & Spencer came in second place with five star ratings across store appearance, quality of own-label products and the quality of fresh products. Lidl ranks in third position with five stars for its value for money, but did not do so well with customers when it came to queuing time, staff availability and range of products. Waitrose, which held the top spot for three years, dropped to fourth position. Its customers gave it a two star rating for its value for money, in contrast to Aldi’s five. The big four supermarkets – Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s – languish at the bottom of the in-store survey. Neill added: “With food costs rising it seems as though shoppers have felt the pinch and are voting with their feet and wallets. Aldi and Lidl have won over their customers with value for money, knocking Waitrose off the top spot. “The big four supermarkets need to up their game or risk losing their customers to other supermarkets who are doing a better job of giving people what they want.”

Not understanding the local customer is the same reason why so many British retailers have failed when they take over an overseas retailer as all too often they bring over their British format which doesn't work in the other country.

Homebase near us now looks really cheap and tacky and half empty where as it used to be an upmarket version of B&Q.Very sad.

Catherine Shuttleworth, CEO of marketing agency Savvy, described this an as "interesting move" for the retailer to take total responsibility for its customer loyalty scheme moving forward. "There’s a real strategic advantage here and demonstrates that loyalty is anything but dead,” she added. Jonathan Buxton, partner and head of consumer and retail at Cavendish Corporate Finance, said: “SainsburyR17;s acquisition of the Nectar loyalty program and its related assets for £60m is a strategic move by the grocer, primarily to gain insights into consumer behaviour across a number of industries, defends against entrance of Amazon to the sector.” In today’s hyper-competitive grocery landscape, consumer data is king - for grocers, it helps them to market more effectively to consumers, optimise their ranges and maximise footfall. With the Nectar loyalty program under its roof, Sainsbury’s is putting consumers right at the front of its business, in contrast to the Tesco-Booker deal, where Tesco seems to be increasingly becoming a logistics operation. The deal will give Sainsbury’s unparalleled access to consumer habits within both Sainsbury’s stores and other operators, such as Vue Cinema, Ted Baker, and eBay, allowing it to refine product offerings, pricing and marketing. With Amazon gaining traction in grocery following the Whole Foods transaction and given the superior consumer data available to Amazon as an online specialist, we expect to see further acquisitions and collaborations as the grocers seek to gain new insights into consumer behaviour.”

Sainsbury’s has forked out £60million to buy the Nectar loyalty card business in a bid to make the supermarket more profitable. http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/markets/article-5341349/Sainsburys-buys-Nectar-card-business-60m.html

far too many staff in our local store who don't seem to be doing that much but often chatting amongst themselves also spending far too much time eating the subsidised meals, as if they own the place, in the cafe wouldn't be so bad if some of these friendly staff were showing a bit more initiative going about their work, but having spoken to a bright temporary worker who worked hard having been taken on for xmass run in and them released, whilst some of the dozy ones were kept on, it makes you wonder. still they will have to address this issue, at least in some stores, if they are to compete with the discounters, who seem to get the best out of their workers and then perhaps the price will rise. Would imagine the hedge funds could turn this around

"The recent rise has nothing to do with such announced job cuts. The rise is a natural consequence of the share becoming too cheap and value investors see an opportunity" Oh OK just a coincidence then with the job cuts as the share price has been depressed for years prior to that while the bull market rages to record highs.

I agree there is a necessity to change but I worry they have gone to far to fast with this. Make no mistake this is drastic,basically nearly every employee between general assistant and store managers job has gone and that is literally thousands of staff. Their jobs will be replaced by a much smaller amount of junior management rolls. The problem is there have already been many cuts in staffing levels in the last few years. Unlike the discounters they are not set up to run on minimal staff,systems are labour intensive and the bigger ranges stocked and expectations of customers is higher. I suspect they will lose a large amount of their most experienced staff. Achieving this change without losing customers will be a huge challenge imo.
