The Shopper ‘Spring’

After updating the ‘Battle of the Marketplaces’ post I began to wonder if there is a ‘Shopper ‘Spring’.

It’s a small sample but Amazons share of shopping visits does seem to be going down over the past few weeks. What can we take from this? A number of people have commented recently that buyers are tiring of large corporates generally – take Tesco for example – the supermarket giant is seeing falls in market share too.

Are buyers at last feeling that corporate greed deserves buyer strikes? eBay after all is still made up of many thousands of smaller sellers despite the rise of the ‘outlets’.

Lets hope that small independents get the benefit of any ‘shopper spring’
