The strategies highlighted offer insights into how these businesses maintain profitability, customer satisfaction, and market presence even during downturns.

  • Trader Joe’s excels with limited product options and high customer satisfaction, keeping prices low by avoiding middlemen and controlling the supply chain.
  • Primark, a fast-fashion retailer, thrives with a “bricks and mortar” approach, choosing not to sell online and focusing on in-store customer experience.

  • Nintendo has expanded beyond gaming consoles to theme parks and movies, leveraging its iconic characters and family-friendly content to grow its brand.
  • Barnes & Noble adopts a localized strategy, tailoring each store’s book selection to the community’s tastes and stepping away from a one-size-fits-all model.
  • Lego leverages licensing deals and multimedia content to expand its customer base and become the largest toy maker in the world.
