8 INTRODUCTION: SCOPE AND CONCEPTS RETAIL POSITIONING Positioning is a concept that has evolved to help a retailer to understand their own standing relative to their competition, as perceived by their customers. It can help a retail organisation that is involved in strategic planning to have a good understanding of how one retailer’s offer is regarded compared to others, and the basis upon which the offer is ‘measured’ by consumers. Both academic and trade sources suggest that the following elements of a retail offer are important in how customers judge one retailer’s offer over another: ■ ■ ■ ■ price; product assortment; convenient to use/visit; service quality.

Purchases such as household furnishings, cars or large electrical appliances would fit this category. Other tangible goods are consumable and convenience orientated products such as food and toiletries. These products are generally less complex, frequently purchased and being of lower value, involve less risk. Other products are information based at the purchasing stage and are consumed as they are used, such as a travel ticket or a holiday. Some service products are experienced as they are purchased and consumed, like a restaurant meal or a haircut.
