This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

I am a marketing executive at a grocery store chain and have been asked by my supervisor to evaluate the positioning of two of my major competitors, relative newcomer Amazon Grocery and ALDI's. Amazon Grocery has over 15,000 non-perishable items, half of which are focused on the organic and healthier food-related products market while ALDI's has been shaped as the highest quality food-related products at the lowest possible price. I have to respond to the following questions:

1. Think about demographic and socio-cultural trends and changes and explain how each organization's interpretation of these trends and changes has affected its choice of strategy?

2. Is their strategy affected by the amount of advertising they do on television and the internet?

3. Which organization do you think is currently positioned better and why?

4. What strategy would be recommended for the organization chosen based on recent trends and changes?

5. How can these strategies improve that organization's image as a "corporate citizen" within the community?

Please cite all references in APA format.
