Who would have believed a Tesco/booker competitor/rival against the merger! I wonder what this symbol operator thinks on Amazon?

Was that your work loganair or a c&p from some unnamed source? I think the only other symbol group big enough to be concerned would likely be Spar.

Rival symbol groups and independent retailers could be priced out of the market by the massive buying power of a combined Tesco and Booker operation, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) probing the proposed £3.7bn merger deal has been told by a symbol operator. The symbol group has urged the CMA to “block this merger outright”. It said: “Tesco’s overwhelming wholesale price advantage will enable it to attract retailers to its symbol(s) by offering them prices that will be unmatchable by any competitor, even with the most competitive will in the world. “Tesco will only be able to do this because it can leverage its buying power from its supermarkets into the wholesaling and convenience sectors.” The CMA is conducting a full investigation into the merger and it is due to publish its provisional findings next month (October), with the full report due to be revealed in mid-December. The identity of the symbol group that has made a submission to the CMA is being kept under wraps for confidential commercial reasons. It claimed the supermarket giant could use its increased buying power for several reasons, including paying higher dividends to Tesco shareholders or reducing prices in its company-owned stores. Tesco might reduce prices across the board to include its own stores as well as the Booker symbol groups and franchisees. “With the respect of the latter, it is far from certain that these savings would be passed on to the consumer. Retailers are likely to retain some or all of the benefits.” The symbol operator said Tesco would be able to extract better prices from suppliers, which might have to pass costs on to the supermarket giant’s competitors, including the independent sector, forcing them in turn to increase prices for shoppers. “This will make those wholesalers and retailers less competitive.” A merged Tesco and Booker set-up would also “raise barriers” for new franchises or symbol groups aiming to enter the convenience market. “Depending on location,” said the symbol group, “Tesco could also introduce lower retail prices at a targeted local level, so as to undermine the ability of the new entrant’s symbol retailers to compete.”

British supermarket sales increased by 3.6 percent in the 12 weeks to Sept. 10, largely driven by higher inflation and extending a run of above-3-percent growth to six months, industry data showed on Tuesday. “A 1.5 per cent increase in the volume of goods going through the tills has contributed to this growth while the remainder of the overall sales increase is down to higher prices. “The average British household spends almost £4,200 in the grocers each year so a fall in inflation, which we expect to see as we approach the end of the year, will be a welcome relief. Lidl grew the fastest, with an increase of 19.2 percent taking its share to a record high of 5.3 percent up 0.7 percentage points on last year., Kantar Worldpanel said, while growth at rival Aldi was 15.6 percent, resulting in a share of 6.9 percent. "Collectively Aldi and Lidl now account for nearly £1 in every £8 spent in Britain’s supermarkets – a decade ago this was only £1 in £25". "In the past three months almost 63% of shoppers visited one of the two retailers, up from a level of 58.5% last year.” Despite the growth of the discounters, 98% of households still shopped in at least one of the traditional big four retailers over the same three-month period, Kantar Worldpanel noted. Of the “big four” supermarkets, market leader Tesco came out on top, with sales up 2.7 percent, although its share was squeezed by 0.3 percentage points to 27.8 percent. Sainsbury’s sales were up 2.1 percent as its market share decreased to 15.7% from 15.9%, Asda rose 1.5 percent to sit on 15.4% share and Morrisons was up 2.3 percent as its market share slipped slightly to 10.3% from 10.4%, Kantar said. Co-op sales fell for the second month in row, taking market share down 0.3 percentage points to 6.3 per cent. Waitrose’s sales increased by 2.4 per cent. The retailer has retained a 5.3 per cent share of the market. Sales increased at Iceland for an 18th consecutive period and are now up 4.0 per cent on a year ago, though market share has remained flat at 2.1 per cent. Ocado grew sales by 10.1 per cent giving it a market share of 1.4%. Food inflation was 3.2 percent, compared with 3.3 percent in the previous period.

If you read the John Lewis report through you'll see that their takings were up, the drop in profits was due to thinner margins and reorganisation costs. I can understand the thinner margins, they were never the cheapest in the marketplace especially the Waitrose foods.

Alphorn. What's your point?. People might not be buying non essentials but food still top priority for most if not all.

.........Markets await Bank of England rate decision, as John Lewis profits halve. John Lewis group, owner of Waitrose, says consumers are being hit by inflationary pressures and political uncertainty. John Lewis profits hit by weak pound.

The latest findings by researcher Kantor Worldpanel on August 13th shows that the grocery market grew by 2.2 per cent during the last quarter compared with 2 per cent in the previous three months. Sales in the 12-week period were up €45 million to €2.34 billion. Tesco and Aldi were among the fastest-expanding retailers over the 12 weeks to August, both with sales growth of 3.4 per cent."
