Passage :The Shop-O-shelf Company’s supermarkets are situated in Bangalore, Coimbatore and Vellore. The company is dynamic and aggressive having grown from 8 stores ten years ago to 26 today. Kanchipuram is a town 60 miles from Vellore. It has not shown the spectacular growth of other suburbs, but its population has increased from around 56,000 to 1, 30,000 in the past decade. With no other Shop-O-Self supermarket within 20 miles of the area, Shop-O-Self Company isconsidering opening a store in Kanchipuram. The Arguments against: some Shop-O-Self executives oppose the project as a poor risk. They point to the proposed site, which is in a shopping centre three miles from Kanchipuram business district. Two other food chains have failed on this site because they claim; most new residences are on the other side of the community. Moreover, the shopping centre owners demand a five year lease. Shop-O-Self would have to try to find another business to take over the lease should its own store fail before the end of that time. If a Shop-O-Self market must be opened in Kanchipuram, it would be far better, these executives argue, to build it in the heart of the community. But they point out, another supermarket is already there. The Arguments for: The Majority of the executives maintain that the site has great potential. A new east-west highway is being built which will pass Kanchipuram to the north and force the carcommuters to Kanchipuram to pass by the shopping centre. A housing project of 3, 000 units isgoing to be constructed nearby. The average household is expected to consist of five people with over Rs. 30,000 of income to dispose of annually. They also argue that the centre of Kanchipuram is now congested with traffic and has extremely poor parking facilities, while there is excellent parking in the shopping centre. Investment in a new building in Kanchipuram, proper than a five year lease should the store fail. They are not too concerned about the other supermarket in Kanchipuram. There is enough business for both. Besides, the competitor’s prices are higher than shop-o-self. They also discount past supermarket failures in the shopping centre. They claim these were caused more by poor management than by the shopping centre’s being slightly off the beaten path. The Decision: The board of directors listens to both sides and then votes to open a Shop-o-self store at the Kanchipuram shopping centre.
