INSIGHT: Shinsegae looks to gatecrash Korea’s c-store party (£) | Planet Retail

Shinsegae has announced ambitious plans to ramp up its involvement in the Korean convenience store sector, aiming to have 2,500 With me outlets up and running within three or four years. The retailer believes the secret to breaking into the already-crowded channel lies in its innovative franchising system by which it plans to attract store owners to the banner. With Korea’s established big four already controlling about a 90% market share and against the backdrop of a sluggish economy, Planet Retail considers whether Shinsegae’s plan stands any chance of success.

INSIGHT: Update - FDI in India is still only theory | Planet Retail

The recent Indian general election, won by the nationalist-leaning Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has led to fresh uncertainty over the future of Foreign Direct Investment in the country’s dynamic, retail sector. After years of mixed messages over FDI it seems many large foreign grocery retailers remain in the dark as to how they should approach Indian investment. The announcement this month that Carrefour has, for now, given up on India is clear illustration that a lack of clear progress in this area is causing multinationals to rethink their strategies and, ultimately, even their very presence in the market.
