4. Key Markets
Walmart: Canada SWOT
STRENGTHS
 Canada is one of Walmart’s longest-established international markets.
 Supercentres have had a significant impact on the Canadian grocery
market. Already the second-largest retailer overall, Walmart will
challenge Loblaw for market leadership.
 Geographic proximity to US has enabled almost seamless deployment of
EDLP and supply chain practices.
 Global scale and lean cost structure enables Walmart to better absorb
inflationary pressures compared to its domestic rivals.
OPPORTUNITIES
 Further conversions/upgrades of discount stores to Supercenters
(around 170 discount stores remained trading at the 2013 fiscal
year-end).
 Further organic expansion of Supercenters in under-represented
region (e.g. the Maritime Provinces in the east).
 Introduction of smaller-box formats - Neighborhood Market or
Express - to mirror its strategy in the US.
 Possible acquisitions of smaller rivals.
WEAKNESSES
 Walmart took longer than expected to become a success.
 Target entered the market early in 2013 and is expanding aggressively.
 Failure of Sam's Club in Canada has left something of a bitter taste.
 Although Target has struggled to achieve its performance targets since
entering Canada, it is nevertheless intensifying competition in the nonfood sector.
 Grocery merchandising, although improving, still lags behind
Sobeys and Loblaw.
 Heavily exposed to GM, many sub-sectors of which are suffering weak
consumer demand.
 Absence of a smaller format gives competitors such as Sobeys an
advantage in targeting the convenience/urban segment.
 Poor reputation in union/labour relations.
5
THREATS
 The grocery market is subject to ongoing consolidation (e.g. Sobeys’
takeover of Safeway’s Canadian stores) and competitors are therefore
becoming larger.
 Walmart could over-expand in its efforts to head off Target’s incursion
into Canada.
 Unionisation.
