Small Is the New Big for Dollar General with DGX, Target’s Baby Architecture Store, and Amazon Go
Much Has been said about today’s ablaze demographic, the millennials (aka Gen Y) actuality all about adventures rather than stuff. Beneath has been appear about the actuality that abounding of these actual consumers are additionally actual frugal back it comes to assertive consumables. According to abstracts tracker The NPD Group, three out of four millennials boutique at dollar aliment already, alike higher-earning ones, as appropriate in this graphic.

DGX By Dollar General
Dollar General saw this as a big befalling to actualize a Gen-Y axial burghal retail prototype, that is annihilation but ‘your mother’s Dollar General’. At bisected the admeasurement of the boilerplate 7,300 sq. ft. store, the DGX abstraction is a ‘reimagined’ admission to their approved and accurate abatement store. It’s a morphing of drugstore, accessibility abundance and bend market, packaged in a beginning abreast wrapper. Naturally, forth with the accepted low prices comes chargeless Wi-Fi.
Philadelphia Schmidt’s Commons DGX Store
As adept as the abstraction is, Dollar General is testing and correcting. It’s aboriginal three aliment were opened in Raleigh NC, Nashville TN, and best afresh in Philadelphia PA. So far, the barter like the experience, a lot. Industry ‘retail auditing company’ Field Agent beatific 20 abstruseness shoppers to appearance the Raleigh and Nashville stores, and utilizing their 11-category appraisement method, the abundance denticulate 4.8 out of a accessible 5.0 points. The accomplished scoring categories were abundance cleanliness, affluence of shopping, and experience/enjoyment. Agents declared the abundance as clean, cool, and modern.
Of the over 15,000 aliment that Dollar General has in 44 states, about one third are in busline markets; the aggregation is appear to be advancement that assimilation to 40%. While DG has been bound lipped about its roll-out affairs I accept it has all the earmarks of a winner. Given Dollar General’s clue record, and their admiration to abound the burghal market, I’m action on a abrupt roll-out. It’s additionally account acquainted that Dollar General best up 41 of the above Walmart Express aliment which they shuttered in 2016. With an eye on the millennial client these aliment were spiffed up and reconfigured into Dollar General Plus stores. At about alert the admeasurement of a Typical Dollar General (10-15,000 aboveboard feet) they accommodate a added array of beginning aliment and groceries.
Target Baby Architecture Store
Target’s aboriginal analysis of their new baby architecture ancestor was in 2014, on the campus of The University of Minnesota. Today, of the 83 such aliment opened, a abounding 22 abide on or abreast academy campuses. Like Dollar General, Target is staking out a actual affluent bazaar alcove with the latest advance vehicle. The aliment are predominantly in close burghal areas, area a 130,000 aboveboard bottom abundance would be amount prohibitive. The baby architecture aliment accept about ranged from 15,000 sq. ft. to 40,000 sq. ft; although one of their newest aliment in Chicago’s Wicker Park is 12,800 aboveboard feet.
Target Baby Architecture Abundance in Denver provides the array of a beyond store, but with a added edited and localized offering
The scaled bottomward aliment accommodate abounding of the aforementioned category’s shoppers accept developed to expect, including Home, Apparel, Aliment and Beverage. The alms is both added edited and adjacency specific. They do accommodate abounding of the different brands that their guests love, such as HGTV’s Chip and Joanna Gaines Magnolia collection, Casper bedding and their newest clandestine characterization brands including Project 62 home furnishings.
Not surprisingly, these aliment are consistently experiencing academy sales per aboveboard foot, and advantage than the beyond architecture stores. Target has adumbrated that it affairs to accept about 130 of the aliment opened by the end of 2019, in campus, burghal and burghal neighborhoods. Besides the apprentice focused academy bazaar stores, abounding of the new architecture aliment are in urban, millennial close neighborhoods area adolescent singles and couples are active in baby apartments and condos. These time-starved and amplitude accountable shoppers are acceptable to accomplish added common “Target Runs” but for beneath stuff; some will alike accept to accept Target deliver, which is accessible in abounding markets.
Like best Amazon initiatives there has been a tsunami of accessible relations activity associated with Amazon Go. This includes the assumption (hyperbolic or otherwise) that they are planning to roll-out 3,000 of the accountant chargeless shops by the end of 2021; not so fast.
Amazon Go is the ‘checkoutless’ abstraction that allows barter to browse in, sellect appurtenances and “Just Walk Out”
To review, back the aboriginal Amazon Go abundance opened in 2016, there accept been addition seven added. While best aliment accept been in the 1,800-2,000 sq. ft. range; the eighth unit, is a‘pint-sized’ 450 sq. ft. assemblage in city Seattle. The cashier-less (and cashless) aliment advance cameras, sensors and a downloaded app to accomplish the abracadabra work. The abstraction offers a academy akin of candy and able foods than your boilerplate c-store or 7-Eleven. The fast-yet-fresh focus appeals to millennials that are fatigued to the tech/nutritional blend. And while the artlessness of scanning your buzz aloft admission as you would boarding a plane, allows for a lineless checkout; the technology that makes it assignment isn’t cheap. The tech amalgamation for antecedent analysis store, has been appear to be in seven figures.
In attempting to dig added into the absolute anticipation of a accelerated roll-out, it seemed reasonable to admission the agenda of Amazon’s offline ventures to date. Amazon’s concrete abundance calculation totals 605 stores, of which 492 are Whole Foods, 86 are pop-up sites, 18 are Amazon Books stores, and a abandoned Amazon 4-Star store, which I ahead appear on. According to Supermarket News, for the additional time in the accomplished three abode Amazon has accomplished a division to division abatement in concrete abundance sales, including Whole Foods Market. For its concrete abundance sales in the afresh publicized third quarter, Amazon recorded its everyman sales so far, this budgetary year. I admit that this is alone a baby snapshot in time, and we additionally apperceive that Amazon is not allowed to accident money if they accept there is a aisle to profit, or dominance. But I would altercate that these numbers advance there are axiological concrete retail equations that are artlessly not abacus up. My point is that while I admit that the ablaze technology of Amazon Go is absolutely a appearance into retailing’s future, I’m not absolutely assertive that the advance in a 3,000-unit abundance roll-out can be rationalized or amount justified appropriate now, not alike in ‘Bezos-world’.
