Abstract: Albertsons, the second-largest super market chain and the fifth-largest drugstore in the US, is among those that pioneered the 'dual branding concept' by transforming its food stores to 'food and drug' combination stores.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss the methods adopted by Albertsons to differentiate itself from its competitors
