What the Loss of the Costco Co-branding Partnership Means for American Express

Kendrick SandsAnalyst Insight by Kendrick Sands - Senior Consumer Finance Analyst

American Express recently reported that its Costco exclusivity agreement that had been in place for 16 years would come to an end in 2016. Both Costco and American Express cited an impasse on terms that would make it “economical” as the justification for the termination. A similar agreement was cancelled in Canada last year between the two companies and could provide some insight into what the future relationships between Costco and American Express will look like going forward in the US. Co-branding presents a sizable opportunity for card networks and issuers beyond immediate revenue from payment volume. The loans and access to a particular consumer segment can provide an initial contact point for additional financial service cross-selling. However, in an increasingly competitive environment for co-branding partnerships among networks, the share of profit created from the programs may continue to shift toward retailers.

Internet retailing is one of the most valuable and fastest growing channels globally with a 12% forecast compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2014-2019.  During the same period, Latin American internet retailing is expected to see a 10.8% CAGR and the US 9.6% growth, respectively. To keep up with their fast-growing competition, in-store retailers have added mobile apps for use in store to enhance consumers shopping experiences and supported higher taxes on internet purchases.

Convenience stores are also growing in popularity despite experiencing different levels of growth in North and South America markets.  For example, Super 24, the only convenience store chain in Guatemala, has tripled its stores since 2010 as many consumers are shopping at convenience stores in place of small independent grocers. Argentine cities are also turning to easier options to shop on the go and Colombians prefer the appealing prices and proximity of convenience stores.

“2014 saw a lot of opportunities for growth and change within the retail category,” said Latin America Research Manager, Sean Kreidler.  “In the coming years, both North and South American regions will remain a lucrative but challenging retail environment.  Sales will continue to grow due to innovation and the opportunity to utilize both online and in-store shopping experiences. However, companies need to be flexible to the needs of consumers, while differentiating themselves from their competitors to be successful in the industry.”

Gender Neutral Shopping: PR Puff or a New Retailing Trend?

Rob WalkerAnalyst Insight by Rob Walker - Contributing Analyst

View Rob Walker's profile on LinkedIn

The first quarter of the year is a challenging time for fashion retailers in the UK. The January ‘sales’, which used to give a big boost to footfall, are now widely seen as gratuitous in a climate of year-round discounting. People are also feeling cash-strapped. It’s not only the hangover from Christmas spending. It’s the endless stream of bills that arrive at the start of the year (utilities, credit cards, tax). This is why, for many British consumers, the post-festive winter period is a time to hunker down and tighten discretionary spending. Small wonder, perhaps, that big name retailers, like Marks & Spencer, have been struggling with their apparel sales.

Tough times call for an innovative marketing agenda. Or, in the case of upmarket department store Selfridges, an innovative marketing ‘Agender’. That is the term the store has coined for its latest ploy to liven up, liberate even, the shopping experience. Here's how it works: For six weeks (during March and April) the store will merge its womenswear and menswear departments over three floors, doing away with what it calls the “limitations and stereotypes” of shopping. Out go the male and female mannequins and in come androgynous ones dressed in non-gender specific clothes. Think David Bowie meets Grace Jones, but in a modern retail setting.

Lessons from Luxury: What Fast Fashion Can Learn in Mexico

Amanda BoulierAnalyst Insight by Amanda Boulier - Research Analyst

View Amanda Boulier's profile on LinkedIn

Mexico has seen a flood of incoming low-cost and standard international apparel brands in recent years. 2012 brought Forever 21, Express, Stradivarius and H&M to Mexico, while 2013 saw the entrance of the likes of Under Armour and American Eagle Outfitters as well as the launch of Banana Republic’s own apparel specialist stores. By contrast, all luxury brands tracked by Euromonitor International in Mexico have been in Mexico since at least 2008, with the exceptions of Miu Miu (2012) and Tag Heuer (2013). Despite differences in positioning, pricing and target consumers, fast fashion brands can take cues from the successful strategies implemented by luxury brands with more time and experience in Mexico.
