Demand isnt a problem for supermarkets. People always need groceries. But strong demand means strong competition. And when your competitors sell the same goods as you, theres only one way to compete: to sell cheaply.

Low prices mean supermarkets only earn a small margin on a lot of the goods they sell. But they have another strategy for making money they sell products before they pay for them. Money from sales can earn interest in the bank for weeks, sometimes months, before stores pay their suppliers.

And supermarkets have another advantage compared with smaller shops. Because they order large quantities from suppliers, they can negotiate big discounts. So the biggest supermarkets can sell at the most competitive prices.
