The province of Ontario announced its plan to increase the minimum wage to CAD14 an hour on 1 January 2018, and then to CAD15 an hour the following January. With this minimum wage increase, the retail environment will be most affected, not only because it employs a significant number of minimum wage workers, but also because it already operates on very thin margins.

Channels include hypermarkets, supermarkets, discounters, convenience stores, mixed retailers, health and beauty retailers, clothing and footwear retailers, furniture and furnishing stores, DIY and hardware stores, durable goods retailers, leisure and personal goods retailers.

Consolidation and multi-branding to gain competitive edge

The trend towards consolidation through acquisitions and the opening of large-size stores was marked in both grocery and non-grocery retailers during the review period, with large chains commanding a strong share of value sales. The trend towards consolidation created retail “empires” in food, electronic goods retailing, bookselling, furniture and hardware sales in Canada. This trend enabled mostly regional players to expand far beyond their traditional base and in some cases all across Canada, such as Metro Inc, Rona Inc and Indigo Books & Music.

Another key trend, most notable in fast growing convenience stores, is multi-branding. This led to the introduction and development of stores that offer the combined benefits of several banners, including fast food outlets. These stores aim to become a shopping destination, as they feature an expanded assortment of grocery and non-grocery goods and expanded customer services, recently including wireless service plans, along with fast food outlets and coffee shops.

Bigger is better but maybe not in long-term

Big-box stores were the darlings of grocery and non-grocery retailers over the review period and the trend towards yet more enlargement continued in 2005. In grocery retailers, hypermarkets registered the strongest rate of growth in current value sales in 2005 over the previous year, as well as being most dynamic in selling space and the number of outlets. The leading Canadian grocery retailers moved towards larger stores as a cost-cutting measure as well as to expand the assortment of non-grocery merchandise to bring in more store traffic. Similar trends towards bigger stores and expanded retail selling areas were marked in non-grocery retailers also.

However, while these larger stores brought in sales increases, not least due to cost-cutting measures, it doubtful whether the future of Canadian retailing belongs to large stores, according to some industry observers. The potential for serious store enlargement is reducing, as Canadian retailing is small and reaching saturation. Furthermore, prevailing social and demographic trends in the country should work against over-large stores.

Convenience stores surging ahead in grocery retailing

Convenience stores became increasingly important to consumers and the operators of fuel stations and other retailers as well during the review period. Retailers find convenience stores attractive since merchandise margins are much higher than those of fuel. Furthermore, convenience stores is benefiting from expanded ranges of grocery and non-grocery products, various customer services and the introduction of consumer foodservice, coupled with convenient locations and long opening hours.

Consequently, convenience stores often fill in the gaps left by large grocery retailers moving out of urban neighbourhoods to seek space for larger stores. Convenience stores serve as quasi-supermarkets for elderly consumers who have no energy to go to large grocery retailers and peruse their huge aisles in a search for a few grocery items. These outlets also appeal to those who do not have the free time to visit hypermarkets, with consumers increasingly short of time in Canada due to longer working hours.

Specialty non-grocery chains strong through discounts or luxury

Within non-grocery retailers, specialty retailers showed a stronger growth in sales than mixed retailers in 2005 over the previous year. While sales at the department stores were “soft”, specialised outlets are faring well as they position themselves as experts in their respective areas and appeal to particular social/income or demographic groups. Satisfying the needs of those seeking economy value or those seeking a luxury experience, specialty retailers are pulling sales away from mixed retailers. Mixed retailers meanwhile find themselves in the middle, being too boring and too generic to be attractive enough to either side of the retailing spectrum.
