John Lewis online competition
The following is a list of online stores offering great competition to John Lewis online, starting with the most generally useful:
Tesco direct The UK's favourite grocer has moved into the territory occupied by John Lewis online, and now offers a wide range of non-grocery products.
ASDA direct ASDA did not take long to follow Tesco into non-grocery products. George at ASDA is especially strong competition for the John Lewis online range of clothing products. Strong branding always helps the bottom line.
Sainsbury's online - Sainsbury have not yet made the same impact as Tesco, ASDA, or John Lewis online, but (perhaps because of this!) their offers are always worth investigating. Sainsbury's online often offers competitive prices on products that are not usually associated with them, like DVD players or TVs. Providing rock bottom prices is a common way for a store to elbow its way into a new market.
Morrison's online - Morrisons have had less impact on non-grocery retailing than the other big supermarket chains, and have not even set up an online store, but watch this space.
Argos online - Like John Lewis online, Argos have a strong online presence. Also like John Lewis, Argos have a strong high street presence in the specialised non-grocery marketplace. They offer a great print catalogue. Keep it on your lap to make quick comparisons with John Lewis online offerings. Also take it with you to the John Lewis store. Argos prices are usually rock bottom, so you may get the chance to test John Lewis' never knowingly undersold offer.
IKEA catalogue - Talking about print catalogues, the most famous is the IKEA catalogue, which has a yearly global print run bigger than the Bible's. The IKEA catalogue has a strong presence in the UK, and IKEA also have a well designed online store. Compare John Lewis online furniture offerings to those in the IKEA catalogue.
Kays catalogue - Kays catalogue is another famous printed catalogue, at least in the UK. Compare Kays clothing offerings to John Lewis online offerings and George at ASDA offerings to triangulate your budget clothing needs.
