Further to our October update (available here), Massmart has filed a complaint with the Competition Commission against Pick n Pay, Shoprite and Spar in an attempt to end lease exclusivity agreements in the retail sector. Exclusive lease agreements held by these retailers, in many instances, prevent Massmart (through its Game stores) from offering groceries at the retail level. The Commission has indicated that the complaint will be incorporated with similar cases currently being investigated.
