- Identifies the biggest CSI winners and losers in electricals this year, highlighting those that pose the greatest threat to your business.
Amazon has recorded a marginal decline of three points in its overall score of 163. However, this is enough to regain second place, having dipped to third last time, thanks to Asda’s fall from second to seventh place.
As was the case in 2011, Comet and Currys have posted the two highest scores for range at 44 and 40 points respectively. As specialists, the two retailers are able to dedicate their entire estates' floorspace to electricals, allowing them to stock a wider range of items.
Asda has yet again come out top for price, despite a drop of nine points to 62. However, the strength of its price-oriented strategy may have obscured other attributes.
