Boston, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/19/2014 -- Non-grocery retailers in Slovenia continued to be the channel where many consumers made savings by reducing all unnecessary expenditure. Due to the adverse economic situation in the country, falling purchasing power forced many consumers to postpone bigger purchases, such as electronics and home equipment, until a more prosperous time. In an attempt to spur their sales, manufacturers are offering big discounts on many products. Furthermore, with the growing internet sales in the country, many manufacturers are expanding into this channel by opening their own internet stores.
There are many manufacturers presented within non-grocery retailers in Slovenia which remains very fragmented and highly competitive. The leading player in 2013 was domestic company Merkur, which accounted for 12% value share. The company is coping with decreasing sales within both channels - electronics and appliance specialist retailers and home and garden specialist retailers. On the other hand, ranking second overall and leading health and beauty specialist retailer Mueller, managed to increase its sales each year of the review period but accounted for significantly lower share of 5% in 2013. It was followed by Poslovni Sistem Mercator and dm-Drogerie Markt doo.
