Chapter 13: Distribution & Retail
By: Eduard Baviera, Maha Elsarrag, Linus Holler & Jorn Steuns
What makes me shop
at certain places?
What can I do to satisfy these customers?
Could we buy
Lets get some dressings!
Demand is growing
What should I do now??
Alice decided to have the dressings made in an independent packing facility and sold to other stores in the area. Alice's family divided up initial sales responsibilities to call on regional stores in their spare time. As
gained more popularity, there just wasn't enough time to call all of the stores they desired?
Could you call the grocery store,
to tell them that we
can restock them?
Again, sis?! I don't have
free time anymore!?
Hmm, what can I do to
give her back some free time?
When Alice sold her dressing to customers from her restaurant, was this an example of an indirect or direct channel of distribution? Why?
Next, Alice sold to a local grocery store at a discounted wholesale price. How did this add more efficiency to Alice's distribution channel?
How are Distribution Channels efficient?
- wholesalers and retailers purchase large quantities of goods from manufacturers, but sell only one at a time.
Channel intermediaries reduce the number of transactions by creating
- providing a variety of products in one location so that customers can conveniently buy many different items from one seller.
is easier for both customers and manufacturers.
If Alice decided to upgrade her bottle and only to sell in upscale specialty and grocery stores, what kind of wholesale intermediary would you recommend she uses?
Refer to chart on page 499
(Think about her target market, her distribution needs and keeping costs low)
Consider the internet's role in the Distribution Channel, if Alice wanted to save money and operate with fewer employees, how else could she sell her salad dressings?
- the process of eliminating traditional intermediaries as companies question the value added by layers in the distribution channel
Retail - Wheel of retailing hypothesis
Reinvestment of retail:
What do they sell?
Level of Service
Merchandise: - Breadth
Major Retail Forms
What do you think made Apple's retailing so successful?
Same approach as IMC
Products, Store and Personnel support one Brand Image/Message form one entity
Case Study : Alice's Dressings
Consider a small one-store familiy restaurant named Alice's, with delicious, unique homemade salad dressings (e.g. Pomegranate, Vinaigrette, Rum-Raisin-Orange Etc.)
Initially, the dressings were only available to customers eating at
. Then customers requesting bottles to buy.
Initial sales and distributions of
Alice's Salad Dressings
were from the restaurant to walk-in customers. Then
were sold to a local grocery store at a discounted wholesale price. As local demand grew, Alice and her familiy couldn't handle packaging enough of the salad dressings in a timely manner.
