Verdict (http://www.reportsandreports.com/Publishers/verdict/) Research: Where Britain Shops 2010: Supermarkets provides a comprehensive analysis of the shopping habits of UK consumers. It presents a detailed examination of changing customer profiles as well as demographic, socio-economic and shopping around trends.


    - A wide-ranging analysis of the way customers shop in supermarkets,
      complete with profiles of Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury and Tesco.
    - In each of the eight categories profiled the report has a
      socio-economic breakdown of shoppers, analysis of competitors used and
      sector penetrations.
    - For each profiled supermarket, this report provides a
      socio-economic breakdown of their customer base and cross sector
      shopping data.


Supermarkets' share of all shoppers is down by 1.7 percentage points year-on-year. The main factor behind this decline is an improved performance by other retailers, especially in clothing. These retailers have opened aggressively in more central locations and worked to offer a higher quality of product and improve their merchandising standards.

Grocers' low prices are attracting more electricals shoppers, on top of gains made due to dissatisfaction with specialists' service levels. More customers are researching a purchase and then buying at the lowest possible price, benefitting grocers. Supermarkets have also improved the good and best partsr of their good-better-best architecture.

Morrison's share of all shoppers has increased by 0.9 percentage points to 27.5%, its highest proportion yet and 4.6 percentage points higher than in 2005. Factors driving this growth were increased promotion of its quality credentials, keener prices and aggressive expansion, especially in areas where it is underexposed, such as southern England.
