Each organization is hard to grow better approaches to develop their revenue, profit, and market share. Key partners which include a formal assentation between interested individuals to cooporate assets, expenses, and abilities to accomplish a shared objective. As one of the biggest business associations in London, TK MAXX has an obligation to grasp a pro-active dynamic marketing procedure such as corporation with other organizations to help in accomplishing its objectives of expanding its revenue income, profit, and market share (Fodness, 2005).
TK MAXX has six dynamic partner groups that are formally organized to help, systems administration, and improvement purposes. These accomplices give the organization new and dependable ideas that support profession improvement and systems administration (Lee, N.R &Kotler, 2015). These partner groups are normally efficient and have a devoted spotlight on the primary objectives of the business. Since 2005, TK MAXX has been an official Comic Relief partner where it managed to raise an incredible amount of revenue worth $13. 4 million. In 2003, TK MAXX partnered with Sainsbury’s to offer Red Nose Day printed T-shirts where they raisedmore than 3.7 million Euros for the Comic Relief. The heft of this amount was raised from offering the Stella McCartney T-shirts (Barringer, Wortman, and Macy, 1994). The organization likewise cooperated with the Emma Bridgewater to deliver and design limited edition Red Nose Day mugs and bakeware’s which sold so profoundly.
Strategic partnership idea
Sainsbury is the organization that has been considered best for association with TK MAXX. It is the second biggest chain of supermarket stores in the United Kingdom, established in 1869. The chose strategy includes facilitating of Comic Relief which is a charity event that significantly works to supporting cancer patients and children with cerebrum tumor. Participation in organized charity events is one TK MAXX’s most loved fun exercises that are intended to reflect on its image and the level of client engagement (Zufry, 1996). The principle target of Sainsbury’s is to enhance its level of consumer loyalty as it is positioned the second best retail shop in the market. Considering its present position in the market, a push to upgrade the organization’s picture and marking by banding together with Sainsbury’s to give them a completive preferred standpoint over other off-value retailers like Goodhood, Tesco PLC, and George Clothing. The major goal of TK MAXX about its partnership idea is to enhance its customer perception in light of the fact that numerous clients feel that TK MAXX still offers high costs for its items. In this way, by incorporating charity events in its projects, the organization may increase the value of its items while keeping up the current quality that identifies with client perception since opinion is a basic drive for practices, states of mind, and inspirations (Carson and Crommie, 1989).
Type of partnership
According to Stone, Woodcock and Wilson (1996), the association between TK MXX and Sainsbury’s is a key union organization which is an agreement between partners to cooperate to accomplish shared objectives and goals. The two partners cooperate to use each other’s abilities, assets, and expenses to develop their clients’ experiences. There are four key classes that are helpful in producing a justification for basic drivers of progress. These drivers are briefly explained in the table below.

- Environmental Complexities
- Competitive Strategy
- Skills and Resources Gap
- Value enhancing opportunities
According to Banerjee and Banerjee (2017), Partnerships become beneficial if all the company’s included benefit equally and improve their value. Planning and participating in charity activities like the Relief Comic that spotlights on helping burdened families that promote physical cooperation of targeted clients builds the brand image of TK MAXX as it keeps on associating with its image name with charity, advancement of wellbeing, and formation of a feeling of solidarity. Furthermore, this charity event benefits TK MAXX as most families that go to such occasions purchase its marked items, for example, T-Shirts and mugs which is a vital component to advancing the organizations benefit, income, and piece of the overall industry (Brown and Bell, 2015). Sainsbury’s take advantage of such organization by enhancing its image mindfulness through its relationship with the world’s driving clothes store (Sargeant, 1999). Such organizations impact potential clients to pick these organizations when settling on future purchase choices.
The chances of developing a successful partnership with other corporations can be greatly disrupted by the social, economic, and technological complexities of different companies (Luecking, 2017). Given the impact of organizing charity events, consumers often get attracted to companies that organize such events. These social events provide a platform for both TK MAXX and Sainsbury’s to market their brands and improve their customer preferences (Sautter & Leisen, 1999). TK MAXX gets to sell its branded products in such events while Sainsbury’s get an opportunity to improve its brand name hence increasing their brand loyalty which directly reflects consumers opinions about the company’s products and services.
Technology is one of the most highly influential factors in the London retail market. Most people spend the biggest part of their time on technological media especially children (Pulendran, Speed &Widing, 2015). When companies consider introducing social events that promote physical interaction encourages parents to attend such events in an effort to control their children’s involvement in online activities. This partnership promotes the branding of both companies hence raising sustainable profits as parents are inclined to make purchases from companies that promote outdoor activities (Armstrong et al. 2015).
Over the years, consumers have identified TK MAXX as their major target market for the financially established individuals. In this partnership with Sainsbury’s, TK MAXX gets a chance to reach out to all kinds of people because Sainsbury’s is a retail shop that accommodates all the needs of its customers from different economic levels. TK MAXX can use this partnership to reach out to new target consumers through natural locations while Sainsbury’s can reach out to more customers by using means of promotional services that relate to the organized events. This partnership does not offer an opportunity for both companies to make direct sales (McCamley & Gilmore, 2018).
The aim of a strategic partnership is to offer mutual advantageous benefits for the parties involved while using co-operative strategies (Kindström & Kowalkowski, 2014). Such partnerships increase the competitive levels for organizations involved by providing an effective and unique grounds for both companies to market their brands to their target customers (Resnick et al. 2016). Most charity events are known for targeting majorly the disadvantaged families. However, the corporation of Sainsbury’s and TK MAXX attracts different individuals hence improving their branding and increasing their competitive advantage (Kotabe & 2014).
Skills and resources gap
Partnerships often provide opportunities for companies to improve their skills and resources (Kindra, 2014). TK MAXX has distribution points in different locations minimizing the cost of external sourcing. As a chain of supermarkets, Sainsbury’s can offer TK MAXX with a clothing outlet and even sell some of its branded fashion products in its retail outlets. On the other hand, Sainsbury’s benefits from TK MAXX by attracting customers who purchase the companies branded products from its retail outlets (McDonad & Wilson, 2016). Since TK MAXX has established a brand name using its effective marketing skills, Sainsbury’s stands a chance of utilizing their well-established communication channels.
Industry positioning strategic options
The London fashion market is expected to grow rapidly. It is therefore crucial for TK MAXX to focus on implementing effective strategies that enable them to grow and maintain their market share (Camilleri, 2018). The effective strategic options for an organization are illustrated in the diagram below.
Strategic Choices for Share Leaders in Growth Markets
Strategic choices should be considered most preferable by factors such as the strength of competitors, size of the market, and customer characteristics (Meidan, moutinho & Chan, 2015).
The London fashion market is growing rapidly, and most fashion choices are made based on the outdoor events that promote interactions among people (Al Mansoori et al. 2018). In relation to this, a market strategy that is confrontational can be considered helpful in strengthening the current market position of TK MAXX. When the outdoor events are organized, people desire to look more fashionable when attending such events. Hence, the company gets a competitive advantage over other companies that offer similar goods and services. The main idea for organizing outside events is to help the company confront the rising issue of developing a creative idea is for TK MAXX to develop a suitable program that will enable it to compete favorably with other fashion retailers (Abidemi, Halim & Alshuaibi, 2017.). The Relief Comic program majorly focuses on ensuring that both children and parents are encouraged to participate in outdoor activities that do not involve technology and also provide them with a chance to help other people. Therefore, in correspondence to the figure above, the creative idea approach provides a suitable confrontational plan that reflects positively on TK MAXX pre-emptive outdoor image and also meets the desires and expectations of the targeted consumers (Tomczak, Reinecke & Kuss, 2018).
The primary objective of organizing the Comic Relief program is to give majorly children an opportunity to experience TK MAXX outdoor activities and its environment. By doing this, the company gains a competitive advantage relating charity events (Li, Lai & Lin, 2017). TK MAXX thus gets an opportunity to confront its major competitor, Goodhood that is currently focusing on online marketing (Hung, 2015). A strategic choice that is objective aims at increasing the level of market competitiveness of TK MAXX by making an effort to help parents address their biggest challenge of helping their children to get to attend outdoor activities while minimizing the amount of time they spend on the technological media (Fleischmann, Meyr & Wagner, 2015).
The main objective of TK MAXX is to offer its consumers with fashion is to offer fashion items such as accessories, handbags, and t-shirts. Given the constantly changing consumer tastes and demands, it is important for the company to keep track, understand, and respond appropriately to these changes in consumer demands to help it offer value to its customers. According to France, Merrilees & Miller (2015), this is an effort made by the company to avoid giving its customers a negative attitude and perception as these crucial to a company’s strategic growth. The Goodhoods have a strategic market expansion plan which it uses to offer customers other outdoor activities by organizing fun activities that target children (Hatipoglu, Alvarez & Ertuna, 2016). Therefore, it is important for TK MAXX to respond and confront this competitor strategy effectively to stay in the top position in the market. The confrontation strategy gives an opportunity for TK MAXX to compete with Goodhoods and provide a favorable outdoor environment that enables consumers to gain a lifetime experience (Plank, 2015).
According to Ansoff’s Matrix, the confrontational strategy is highlighted as a development product for TK MAXX. According to the idea of product development, TK MAXX must improve the services they are offering to their consumers in the current market. This is only possible if the company adjusts to meet the constantly changing consumer demands. However, Goodhood’s strategy of venturing into outdoor activities that target children pose a possible threat to their current offering which targets online consumers (Abulehyeh & Al-zoub, 2017).
|Existing Products||New Products|
|Existing Markets||Market Penetration||Product Development
|New Markets||Market Development||Diversification
The confrontational approach seeks to address the offerings of the competitors, offers an effective approach to respond to the complaints of a common competitor, and the constantly changing consumer demands (Crick & Crick, 2015). According to customers from Goodhhod, the company lacks effective physical promotional events where customers can consequently meet and interact with each other. This is an opportunity for TK MAXX to gain a competitive advantage in the market since there are only a few competitors who have expert skills in providing effective outdoor events (Hanssens & Pauwels, 2016). Involvement in these activities also provides a platform for TK MAXX to improve its brand image and customer opinion by reinforcing the company’s moral and ethical values by helping families to get a platform to control the amount of time their children spend on technological media (French & Russell-Bennett, 2015).
In most cases, the cost involved in implementing this strategic is less as compared to that incurred by the competitor (Strauss, 2016). With TK MAXX’s location in major towns, costs will majorly be incurred in hiring skilled and qualified experts that conduct the charity programs. Although implementation of this approach may prove to be costly, the company’s ability to enhance provide an outdoor experience that accommodates both children and parents provides significant value to the company and provide good consumer experiences that offsets the costs incurred (Moutinho, Curry & Davies, 2015).
