The primary objective of this study is to evaluate three variables utilized frequently within the retail grocery industry to gain a differential advantage within a target market. These variables are Trading Stamps, Credit, and Delivery. Essentially, the study seeks to determine whether these differential variables are related to retail strategy and retail store profitability for a selected group of retail grocery stores belonging to a retailer cooperative. The study also seeks to determine if the utilization of the differential variables creates any profitability changes within the basic retailing strategy variables of the researched respondents. © 1988 Academy of Marketing Science.
