21 Copyright © 2002, MANAGEMENT SCIENCE ASSOCIATES, INC. CEP031902I01 Magazine Purchaser ~ Market Basket Analysis The magazine purchaser is typically one of the highest-spending grocery shoppers and will frequent many higher-margin business lines during their shopping trip. This suggests an opportunity for a cross-merchandising promotion between a particular magazine purchase and other high-ticket items in the store. The magazine purchaser is a more loyal shopper, visiting the store more often than the non-magazine purchaser. This suggests a continuity-oriented magazine offer, possibly as part of a loyalty card reward program, to encourage additional, more frequent magazine purchases. Compared to the non-magazine purchaser, the magazine purchaser is a more involved grocery shopper, relying on the store as a one-stop destination for more of their general household needs rather than just food-related purchases. Conclusions

22 Copyright © 2002, MANAGEMENT SCIENCE ASSOCIATES, INC. CEP031902I01 Magazine Purchaser ~ Market Basket Analysis Since magazine purchasers are typically the higher-spending shoppers, retailers may want to locate higher-priced seasonal or impulse items near the magazine section. Additional placement of magazine categories in the related business line sections should significantly increase magazine sales levels. Tabloids in the Bakery and Tobacco departments Food magazines in the Floral department Kids/Teens magazines in the Pharmacy and Photo Departments Science and Technology magazines in the Video Department Since the purchase of a magazine typically signifies the consumer is on a major shopping trip, the magazine in-line section should be located near other high-margin business lines. Conclusions (Continued)

CEP031902I01 Magazine Purchaser ~ Market Basket Analysis The magazine section would be a great location to place the stores weekly advertising circular, or develop a special in- store advertising section featuring varied higher-ticket items in which this consumer is likely to have an interest. As shown by the high level of interaction between different magazine categories and specific business lines, a store would benefit from adjusting their business line product mix based on the magazine categories which are strong at that location. Likewise, if a specific store has unusually strong sales in a particular business line, it would suggest that there is increased potential for the related magazine category. Conclusions (Continued)
