Sales Slump At Supermarkets

Recommended Posts

this could be a really key event. if people are cutting back on the 'taste the difference' ready meals in favour of asda brand economy burgers, then the economy is REALLY on the turn.

this is the first trimming a family can make. the food budget from luxury to necessity.

Alcohol sales?

Another good indicator, both total sales and the proportion bought in pubs, bars etc, as opposed to off licences, supermarkets etc.

However the food thing is a real surprise, especially as the "value added" convenience sector has been growing so rapidly. Decline there will worry the supermarkets.

Or, perhaps all the "fighting flab" media stuff is having an effect?

I have noticed that there are loads more value foods on offer in morrisons... There are an equal amount of luxury ones too though...

I have to say though they'd panic bought all the milk nearly though!

you have to remember that the big supermarkets also sell widescreen TVs, clothes, DVDs, CDs, travel insurance, MP3 players, playstations etcetera, a slump in sales could initially be attributed to people buying less of this tat on their credit cards.

Just what I was going to say. People are probably not eating less or buying more value meals they have probably simply stopped buying clothes, CDs, DVDs etc.

Interesting to see a breakdown of the sales figures for supermarkets if anyone has them though.
