Final Cumulative Assignment
Two C's of Marketing
Consumer Market -
As a retail store, there are many different type of customers that come and go. The age may vary from a child with their parents, to a grandma with their nephews. Gender and family is always random because they sell products for anyone. The people that shop at Loblaw’s are usually middleclass and have a mediocre income. Loblaws does not need to depend on a specific group but rather they have a large market in Canada to work with.
Supermarkets are common among many neighborhoods including big names such as Sobeys, Metro, and Wal-Mart, in which are Loblaw’s top competitors. Sobeys have been expanding in more recent years catching up to Loblaw’s, although struggling due to the mass empire that Loblaw’s has established. Wal-Mart is still the leading, due to its international business, while Loblaws and Sobeys are both domestic businesses.

Innovation / Invention
Exports / Imports
Advantages and Disadvantages
Loblaws have not invented any products yet, although they have started a new brand called "President's Choice" in which they innovate products already made. Their most famous product is their Chocolate Chip Cookie.
Loblaws has a very well thought out principle and ethics that the company follows very strictly. They centralize in creating a cleaner and safer environment.
Their key ideas are to:
- Respect the environment
-Source items with integrity
- Make a positive difference in our community
- Reflect our nation's diversity
- Be a great place to work
- Easier to manage the company because the owner does not need to constantly go around checking and helping other locations in other countries.
- Understanding the market is much easier due to the small area, giving good insight and predictions towards consumers.
- Access to markets are much more limited, therefore harder to acquire more profit and business.
- Access for resources may not be as easily obtained because the company only have locations in its own country.
Loblaws import a huge variety of products from many different countries, although they do not export because of the domestic business.
(Only sells in Canada )
( Public Corporation yet have few locations which are franchises)
- Fruits and Vegetables from exotic countries
- Meat from better environments

President's Choice always seek opportunities to improve their products, therefore their employees travel the world to find the best recipes and ingredients, as well as inspiration.
Sometimes items are recalled due to low interest or low popularity of the product.
