Economic slowdowns have a direct impact on consumption. Retail, being the end service provider of consumption in the supply/value chain, is bound to face difficulties in an environment of economic slowdown. With India continuing to be an attractive retail market, the Company expects many new entrants into the sector, thus increasing competition, also among existing rivals there is intense rivalry for new locations and quality real estate, therefore it sets up the foundations for increased intensity of competition among existing rivals. With the clearance of FDI from the Government of India, Shopper Stop together with the local multibrand retailers like Wills Big Bazaar, Spencers, etc. Will also have to face severe competition from the global behemoths like Wallmarts. Faced with increasing competitive pressure for customer wallet share, Shopper's Stop will have to improve customer satisfaction and loyalty, increase its breadth of merchandise and expand store operations into new markets, while maintaining profitability.
