Clearly the top 5 have lost market share so your comment "no one knows what's happening" is farcical They will continue to lose market share at the expense of ALDI, LIDL & even Ocado
There is an explanation to that. More people in UK or buying more. I am not sure what recent figures shows on emigration and birth, but today, it had been confirmed that obesity is rising.
Clearly the top 5 have lost share in the past, so my comment is made with reference to recent figures, say the last 3 months. Published share figures are based on value, not on volume. For example, if the Tesco published £sales figure declined by 2% but their price reductions were 4%, this would imply a volume increase for them, with more shoppers in store, buying more but paying less. Stick to sailors, you seem to grasp simple things more than retail concepts
You'll be telling me next the top 5 UK grocers haven't lost any market share to LIDL, ALDI and even Ocado Try looking at the latest statistics to 29/4/15 ALDI has actually overtaken Waitrose to become the 6th largest grocer in the UK You're talking like one of those Egyptian sailors
