Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/06/2012 -- In the club: Major players will diversify, but rising sentiment will keep revenue stable
Warehouse Clubs & Supercenters in the US
The big box picture
Led by Walmart, the industry has displayed exceptional growth in the past decade, mostly at the expense of other retailers. Revenue will continue to grow, as operators capitalize on rising consumer sentiment and demand for one-stop-shops. However, the industry's high concentration will lead to consolidation and fewer enterprises, as existing players choose to open smaller convenience-store-sized locations.
The industry is made up of large stores that primarily retail a general line of grocery products and merchandise items. Warehouse clubs offer customers a wide selection of merchandise (often in bulk) at discounted prices in exchange for a membership fee that is paid by each customer. Supercenters are large discount department stores that also sell perishable groceries. Unlike warehouse clubs, supercenters do not have eligibility requirements for customers.
