Traditional grocery retailers fared badly during the 2020 lockdowns, as consumers chose to shop in large, more spacious outlets. In order to avoid COVID-19 infection.
Strong consumer loyalty shielded some specialised stores. For instance, there is a growing trend for local Slovenian farmers to open their own shops and offer locally produced home-grown food.
Prior to the pandemic, traditional grocery retailers were losing ground and experienced current value decline through the latter part of the review period. This situation has been unravelling since the 1990s with the rise of modern chained counterparts.
Traditional grocery retailers will continue to lose ground over the forecast period. The major obstacle will be the continued penetration of discounters in Slovenia and traditional grocery retailers will be unable to compete on price.
Drinks and tobacco specialist retailers in particular are expected to struggle over the forecast period. Smoking rates are continuing to decline, as factors such as high excise duties discourage people from smoking.
The outlook is muted for traditional grocery retailers over the forecast period, with marginal constant value growth predicted. In particular, traditional grocery retailers will lose out to convenience stores, which offer similar benefits in terms of convenient location and also generally offer a wider range of good, at more affordable prices.

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
