Retail firms have internationalized aggressively, first into developed countries and then into developing countries. Doing business in emerging countries offers growth opportunities, but also holds some uncertainties due to the lack of knowledge on whether international retailers can succeed with a global brand in business that was originally local. To expand on this issue, Karin Pennemann discusses successful positioning options for retail brands in the context of emerging countries and draws implications for retailers’ international brand management. Her research identifies the importance of perceived brand globalness, the underlying value creation process, and the relevance of cultural differences in international retail brand management.
