For the , they consistently find two of store brand entry: . This increase in unit margins implies that the retailer strengthens its bargaining position vis-à-vis national brand manufacturers. However, store brand entry only rarely yields category expansion and does not create store traffic or revenue benefits. Second, do not obtain lower prices on all national brands, only on some second-tier brands.

For the , store brand entry is typically beneficial for national brands, but not for national brands.
