Grocery retailers in the UK have been experiencing the effects of a noticeable shift in consumer behavior. The recession, and the accompanying squeeze on incomes, has led to many consumers becoming shrewd in their purchases and increasingly searching out the cheapest option. This has led to a climate in which discounters have been able to thrive.

The impact of the rise of Aldi and Lidl in the UK is evident. The market shares of the big four are declining, and they are facing struggling UK sales. Share prices have also taken a hit.

The big four supermarkets have responded by cutting prices. Traditional price wars have tended to be beneficial to the dominant companies, with price cuts on certain products being offset by price increases on other merchandise. However, there is evidence that this most recent round of price cutting and price matching is creating a true price war.
