Effect of Super markets on local shops and economies

Postby Abhijit Verma » Tue May 24, 2011 3:04 am

With the growth of supermarkets, there has been a sudden fall in the business of the local shops. Although many studies have been done to see many effects of theses supermarkets on local shops and economies, these have mostly been done in the west. The sole aim of this project is to carry out a holistic study in the Indian market. A variety of aspects like price of commodities, overall shopping experience, quality of goods etc. would be analysed and will be supported by statistics, where ever necessary.
Some recent techniques like Most Significant Change technique, would be employed to get better understanding of the subject.

Keep checking this post for recent updates..... ;)

Friends,
Have you ever felt cheated once you bought anything from a retail store, especially the products with free incentive with them ?
Aren't they actually cheating the customers by selling them "sub-standard" products ?

what are the some 'indirect' effects of Super markets on the local and village economies.
Don't you think most of these super markets are sourcing their products from China?
Middle men must be making a lot of profit, which originally used to be the incentive of small vendors
