Dunnes Stores Ltd was the dominant leader in mixed retailers in 2015 with a value share of 54%. The company’s change in strategy in recent years has seen it move away from individual outlets offering either grocery or non-grocery products towards department-store style outlets offering both. Its grocery departments remain its main focus, with a greater emphasis on the Dunnes Stores Simply Better private label range and also promotional campaigns such as vouchers offering €10 off the customer’s next shop. While the perception of value remains important for Dunnes Stores, it has changed its strategy in recent years by offering higher quality products, particularly within homewares and apparel and footwear.

Industry Prospects

Mixed retailers is expected to continue experiencing increasing sales during the forecast period, with a value expected at constant 2015 prices and sales in the channel rising to €4.5 billion in 2020. Value growth in the channel during the forecast period is expected to be in line with the growth rates recorded during the review period as the strong sales coming from the repositioning of Dunnes Stores from individual outlets specialising in either grocery or non-grocery products towards department stores is likely to slow down.
