Why do we have different shops for the same items?

Featured Image - Future of Work 6

As we all know we have various shops for the same item. An example is tesco and morrisons they both sell the same items but with their brands on them.Why do people do this?

One of the most important reasons is jobs.The more shops we have have the more jobs we have.This will be a great help to the economy and people.If we did not have these jobs the economy will suffer a great loss of money which will result to the goverment not having enough money to care for the whole country.If we didn't have more than one shop the job situation would be even worse than it already is;the jobs would be very scarce which will make many people homeless.Another reason why there is more than one shops is because if we had one shop no one can share their ideas and we will have to stick to the same old boring things and use them over and over again.So by having more than one job lets people express themselves and create something new.Another reason is that people may want to go to the nearest store so if we had one shop like apple that would be hard to put it everywhere around the country.Another reason is tastebuds.People might favour different items and will preffer certain stores and as some other stores don't have the qualities people may be looking for.Such as how people may like organic fruits over casual fruits.One other reason is the prices.Some shops have different prices and if those prices were too high and people can't afford them how would the people get their daily shopping.So if we had only that brand store for that one item the prices will all be the same which may unaffordable for some people.The last reason is because of competition.There is lots of competition in different industries and having competition is good because then you would do your very best for your customers and that means you will care about what kind of products you sell.The competition is also good because it helps you develop different skills that are at your disposal when you need them.

I hope that you have understood why we have various shops for the same item and I would love to hear your views and discussions about it.

    I wonder when there will be so many shops that there will be no more room for any other shops.

      What do you think might happen if there was "no more room for any other shops", wise_rainforest?

    This Was a very interesting and alluring post consistent_starfruit and I agree with you
    In my opinion I think that its quite stupid that we have 2 shop or more selling the same item because Why do that if a another shop sells the same good as you???
    Also I disagree to because what if For example Tesco and Morrison sell the same things but what if Morrison's item that Tesco also sales are better quality so if Tesco's fruit are bad quality because they are only 2 oranges for £5.00 that a bit too much money but if Morrison's oranges are 6 for £2.00 that a reasonable price!!
    Really good post consistent_starfruit keep up the good work!!

    The reason we have multiple shops in the first place is because people want to make business. Asda compete to try put a shop in a certain place, and so do Aldi, Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsburys etc. They all want to make money which is why you will never find a town or village with only one shop. Also, it is good that we have multiple stores, because it means that we have a range to choose from, and also because it means that we can access one more easily. For instance, we might prefer the Sainsburys apples to the Tesco apples and if we needed to get some milk, we couldn't go to the corner store (as there wouldn't be one) and we would therefore have to go to the one main store which could be miles away. Then when we got there, there would be a long (and I mean very very very long) queue which isn't ideal for when we just want some milk is it? Anyway, that is my opinion on why we need lots of different shops.

      i agree with you accomplished_reality because one shop could have badder items than another shop so customers would want to go to another shop instead

    Well, they have shops with the same items because it gives the workers money and if you don’t have any shops near you or there far away, it will save you the hassle and possible chance of getting Covid-19
