ABSTRACT
The article focuses on significant changes taking place within the retailing community. The company that everyone else used as a benchmark has the inevitable happen: a dramatic fall from the power position to one that is looking to change to keep up with the rest of the pack that somehow caught up. There were the nouveau fast growth retailers that relied on heavy promotions. And as the heavy promotions grew heavier and more intense as to pricing, legal issues as well as other challenges cropped up. What makes this era's dynamics even more intense are changes speeding up the distribution of product from supplier to consumer.
