The Distribution Systems of Supermarket Chains by Alan C. McKinnon
The Service Industries Journal, 5 (2): 238-226, (1985).
Abstract: This article considers the benefits supermarket chains may achieve from setting up their own distribution systems and attempts to explain differences in distribution strategies. These differences appear to be closely related to differences in the way chains have grown, management investment preferences and turnover composition, taken in conjunction with total sales, branch size and geographical extent of the business.Show all publications
