Abstract

With the pandemic, digital transformation (DT) was accelerated, and consumers adopted new consumption patterns. Therefore, suppliers had to adapt their business models quickly. This study aims to understand the strategies of large suppliers on Mexican corner stores (CS) during the pandemic and show the perception of CS about these DT strategies. Many digital platform initiatives that were developed by both the government and large suppliers are introduced in this chapter. Additionally, interviews with large suppliers' executives were consulted to clarify their activities that were developed in favor of CS. By conducting 20 interviews with CS, the authors found their perception of large suppliers' DT actions. Findings reveal that the lack of training, investment, and incentives are key factors for the entire virtuous cycle to be fulfilled.
