E Leclerc in Retailing

May 2010

French retailer E Leclerc is a regional player whose domestic market continues to account for the vast majority of its overall revenue. E Leclerc enjoys a strong position in the French hypermarkets channel, posting a particularly positive performance in 2009. The company benefited from a low price positioning during the economic downturn. An area of weakness is its international presence, with E Leclerc significantly lagging behind rival retailers in its international expansion efforts.
