In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, traditional grocery retailers performed very well, despite the depleting disposable incomes. Nonetheless, consumers were more price sensitive and switched to lower-priced brands.
Independent small grocers benefit from their convenient locations throughout Algeria. Many outlets are close to bus stops, especially in larger cities.
Traditional grocery retailers were still the dominant retailer in Algeria in 2021. The competitive landscape will remain very fragmented in 2021, as small independent traditional retailers continue to dominate, offering convenience to consumers, partnered with cheap prices.
Despite the developments in modern grocery retailing, traditional grocery retailers is expected to continue to dominate overall grocery retailers in Algeria in the forecast period. Traditional outlets benefit from being perceived as more convenient, with closer proximity to consumers and longer opening hours than most modern retailing outlets.
Over the forecast period, traditional grocery retailers will continue to lose value shares to the modern channel as modernisation and urbanisation rapidly expand in Algeria. In addition, due to growing hectic lifestyles, shopping habits are changing in Algeria, with an increasing number of Algerians preferring to shop once a week at modern retailing outlets than shopping small volumes on daily basis from traditional retailers.
Traditional grocery retailers is not predicted to remain immune to the developments in grocery retailing. To compete with modern grocery retailers, traditional players are likely to continue expanding the sales area of their outlets.

Traditional grocery retailing is the aggregation of those channels that are invariably non-chained and are, therefore, owned by families and/or run on an individual basis. For Euromonitor traditional grocery retailing is the aggregation of three channels: Independent Small Grocers, Food/Drink/Tobacco Specialists and Other Grocery Retailers. While there can be modern (i.e. chained) food/drink/tobacco specialists or other grocery retailers, due to the store's presence in the channel, these stores are still considered as traditional for Euromonitor International.See All of Our Definitions
