Wal-Mart executives “will use their deep pockets and low-cost structure to outlast the competition until somebody else blinks,” said Jim Danahy, program director of the centre of excellence in retail leadership at York University’s Schulich School of Business and CEO of consultancy CustomerLAB.

At the same time, Loblaw and Sobeys, the country’s largest and second largest grocers, respectively, are aggressively seeking savings from their recent mergers, he said. Loblaw acquired Shoppers Drug Mart Corp. and Sobeys’ parent Empire Co. bought Safeway Canada.
