Minipreço is evolving its discount format to provide shoppers with solutions, rather than simply supplying products. This is seeing the retailer upweight its food-to-go and health and beauty ranges and adapt its stores' designs to make them more appealing to shoppers. We saw two stores that show how the retailer is looking to enhance its price and proximity strategy to stand out in the competitive Portuguese market.

Pingo Doce, in its Q1 2016 results, said total sales rose 6.3%, driven by like-for-like growth of 2.1%.

We went in-store at Continente’s hypermarket in Cascais to understand how the retailer is using its multi-brand, multichannel strategy in collaboration with its investment in prices and fresh categories to provide a large store offer that is relevant for today’s shoppers.

Pingo Doce’s hypermarkets account for a small share of its store portfolio and overall sales, but are key in supporting shopper perception of the brand by enabling it to place a focus on its hero categories of fresh fruits and vegetables, bakery, meat and fish.

See how Pingo Doce has been evolving its supermarket format, which accounts for nearly 90% of stores and 80% of sales, removing SKUs to create a more targeted and efficient store that is easy and quick for customers to shop and provides a breadth of range to meet diverse shopping missions, including top-up and full weekly shops.
