Produit et information géographique : le géomerchandising
Concerning trade management, geography intervenes when dealing with the adaptation of price to the characteristics of a trade area. It would also deal with the distribution of messages (catalogues, prospectus, display, etc.) in certain geographic areas more than others, according to the expected efficacy of the communication. However, in this chapter, we will not concentrate the analysis on the location strategy or on the pricing (see chapter 9), and communications policies (see chapters 10 and 11), but on the policy of the supply/offer, knowing that the assortment is a decision for which the geographic dimension also reveals itself to be equally fundamental. Thus, in the hypothesis in which the retailer constitutes his assortment without taking into account climatic, economic, demographic and psycho-sociological differences linked to geography, the offer will probably be out of step with customer expectations. Consequently, effective productivity of the store will be inferior to it potential productivity.
