Moderator Comment: What is more important for a retailer looking to build consumer loyalty – communicating a passion for food or having a loyalty card program?
Grocery retailers, by the nature of the business, should
be foodies. Most supermarkets do not do a particularly good job in communicating
this to consumers. The result is consumers largely make decisions on where to
shop based on price perception. Price is not a sustainable marketing strategy
for most. [George
