Aldi, Lidl Boost Grocery Market Share In U.K., But Big Chains Are Fighting Back

November 17, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
British grocery store shopping data from Kantar show that discount German grocers Aldi and Lidl achieved a combined 10 percent market share in the quarter ended November 8. That’s double the market share from 2012. The two chains added a million shoppers from a year ago, and average spend per shopping trip was up four percent. With plans to open hundreds of stores in the short term, the two retailers are tightening their hold on British grocery shopping. Conventional grocers are fighting back, however. Sainsbury's most recent fiscal period saw a 1.5 percent increase in sales, a 0.2 percent increase in market share, and the distinction of being once again the second largest grocery chain behind Asda.
