October 22, 2018, The Edge Malaysia - China is The World's Retail Laboratory

China has fewer malls and stores than the US, but even these have seen sales slump as consumers prefer to venture outside for experiences, not shopping. In a sign of e-commerce's dominance over bricks-and-mortar retail, internet giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, which runs the biggest e-commerce platforrn in the world,last year paid about US$6 billion to take control of China's top supermarket chain and one of its biggest department-store franchises. Its goal, according to Vey-Sem Ling, senior internet analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, is to have "control over more and more data on customers", whether they are shopping in stores or online. "Going into offline areas allows them to expand their addressable market beyond 800 million internet users to possibly every person in China," Ling says.
