Kosten- und Leistungsstrukturen ausgewählter Betriebstypen des Lebensmittel-Ladeneinzelhandels in Deutschland im Vergleich
The notion of the retail format focuses traditionally on the strategic marketing aspect and the specific configurations of the retail marketing mix. Retail marketing concepts are however a concomitant of specific operating cost and return on capital structures as well as of specific labour and selling space productivity levels which has a decisive impact on the competitiveness of retail formats. The relationship between retail marketing concepts and the connected cost and return structures is discussed on the basis of selected grocery store retailing formats in Germany. As it is shown the retail marketing concepts do not only determine the cost and return structures of these retail formats, but the differentiated cost and return structures also have a significant impact on the potential scope of retail companies in the configuration of merchandise assortment and retail service and on the general growth prospects of specific retail formats.
