How does brand competition within stores affect prices?
in many stores, nationally advertised brands share the shelves with store brands. The introduction of a store brand is a form of market entry—a new competitor for a national brand—and usually decreases the price of the national brand. The classic example of the price effects of store brands occurred in the market for light bulbs: •In the early 1980s, the price of a four-pack of General Electric bulbs was about $3.50. •The introduction of store brands at a price of $1.50 caused General Electric to cut its price to $2.00. •In markets without store brands, the General Electric price remained at $3.50. For a wide variety of products—laundry detergent, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, motor oil, and aluminum foil—the entry of store brands decreased the price of national brands
