Who buys Kaiser’s-Tengelmann-stores? The customers will find Edeka, as well as Rewe as well and have no clear preference. Nevertheless, both brands from their point of view is currently not good.
Although the supermarket chain Kaiser’s-Tengelmann is pretty beat, particularly Edeka and Rewe interest in some branches, or even to take all of them. The permission of the Minister, Sigmar Gabriel, would allow Edeka to buy everything. Rewe, especially in the Person of the Chairman of the management Board Alain Caparros, argues against Edeka would then be too large. Rewe also wants to be allowed to branches.
Behind the tactics of negotiations, personal and aversion, court decisions, Ministerial approval and, hopefully, not least the future of the employees. What the customers want, plays probably no role – after all, every group Manager should be convinced that it is precisely his own offer, the customers appreciate the most.
That’s true, of course, not quite, also shows our YouGov brand monitor brand index. With him, we can query the preferences of the customers and the show: you are so pretty no matter whether the branches of Kaiser’s and Tengelmann will soon be provided with a Rewe or Edeka sign.
Edeka and Rewe equal to many customers
For the fire index, we asked consumers who, in the last half-year, indicate at the Emperor's shopping, what foods trader you generally considered. Rewe is located here, with three percentage points in the distance in front of Edeka. If you look at, however, for what brand the customer of the Emperor’s would to decide in concrete terms, what would be your first choice, Edeka clearly in front of the Rewe.
in contrast, the result of the survey of current Tengelmann customers. Here, Rewe, as well as Edeka are currently neck and neck when it comes to the question of which grocery retailers is the first choice for the next purchase. In short: most customers would be quite satisfied if some of the branches to Edeka, would Rewe to, but Edeka can play an advantage, just under the Emperor's customers.
