“Brick-and-mortar retailers are facing increasing competition from their purely online counterparts, and this is being reflected both in decreasing sales and foot traffic, as well as lower stock prices,” Citi analysts Anindya Basu and Calvin Vinitwatanakhun.
Before you start your store focus on your own private-label brand
Brick and Mortar Store defaults:
Your customer comes in the store, they see what they like then they take pictures of the items they want to purchase in your brick and mortar store and off they go online to google it, search for the national brand for the best price but, If you have a private label, or no label the customer will have a hard time to find the exact item that they are interested to purchase then they come back to your store and buy it. (if they really want it).
According to Forbes
Amazon’s reported plans to expand its private label program is major news for the consumer goods industry. And when the ninth largest retailer makes an announcement about strategy, there are always going to be winners and losers. Entrepreneurs in consumer goods are the clear winners.
As consumers are getting more comfortable with private label, they view it as interchangeable with the established brands. In fact, more than 80 percent of consumers feel that private label products offer as good or better quality compared to national brand counterparts.
This assault comes at time when numerous new, smaller brands have captured the demands of consumers, who are increasingly spending their money on products that meet unique personal preferences – non-GMO, vegan, ethnic, environmentally friendly. This trend, which I call Personalization of Consumer, is transforming the market.
Large consumer brands have failed to adapt to the Personalization of Consumer, leading to some $18 billion in sales shifting from large to small companies from 2009 to 2014 across all consumer packaged goods categories, according to a report by Boston Consulting Group and IRI.
