Warehouse Clubs & Supercentres in Canada

The Warehouse Clubs and Supercentres industry was able to effectively contend with the economic downturn as consumers made more value purchases offered by industry operators. In the five years to 2021, the industry is forecast to continue growing, albeit at a slower pace, as some of the industry's largest operators shift focus away from supercentres and toward smaller format department stores. Per capita disposable income and consumer confidence will continue to increase as the economy strengthens, providing consumers with more discretionary income for compulsory purchases at warehouse clubs and supercentres.

This industry is made up of large stores that primarily retail a general line of grocery products and merchandise items (e.g. apparel). Warehouse clubs offer customers a wide selection of merchandise (often in bulk), at discounted prices, in exchange for a membership fee that is paid by each customer. Supercentres are large discount department stores that also sell perishable groceries. Unlike warehouse clubs, however, supercentres do not have eligibility requirements for customers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
