African Powers of Retailing New horizons for growth
The report is the first in an annual series where we track the progress of the top African retail performers on the continent. We have set out to provide a comparative macro-view of African-based (or ‘home grown’) listed companies whose core business is retail. African-listed subsidiaries of large global retailers are included as individual entities, while we have chosen not to focus on foreign multi national companies with operations in Africa. The data unearths some insights into the regional retail players, their successes and some of their stories. And most importantly, we believe that it opens up conversation and stimulates robust debate around business model adaption, innovation and strategic decision making when it comes to retail in Africa.
