EVOLUTION TOWARDS MULTI
CHANNEL RETAILING
Overcoming limitation of an existing
format – one of the greatest constraints
facing store based retailers is the size of the
stores. The merchandise that can be
displayed & offered for sale in stores is
limited. By blending stores with internet it
expand the assortment offered to their
customers. For eq. best buy, Wal-Mart, home
depot.
Expanding market presence – adding an
electronic channel is particularly attractive to
retailers with strong brand names for
maximum distribution & servicing more
customers .
 Increasing share of wallet –
using other
 Channels results in consumers making more
purchases from retailers. Thus the electronic,
catalog channels drive more purchases from
the stores which leads to retailers to increase
their market share.

 Customer shopping behavior – an electronic
channel can provide valuable insights into
how & why customers shop & how they get
satisfied & dissatisfied with their experiences.
The internet channel offers the opportunity to
collect more detailed information about
customer preferences.
