The retail and wholesale sector is one of the most competitive sectors in New Zealand. The capacity for small businesses to compete is affected by competition from major groups, suppliers and importers, changing demographics and new sales channels.
An increased pressure to discount stock while maintaining high levels of working capital can put a strain on cash flow and profitability.
