Canadian Tire buys Sport Chek, Athletes World owner

Canadian Tire buys Sport Chek, Athletes World owner | Sportchek | Scoop.it
Canadian Tire, where legions of wanna-be hockey stars have gone for their first stick or pair of skates, is embarking on a massive expansion of its sporting goods reach with the $771-million acquisition of Forzani Group Ltd.’s 500 stores.
Omid A's insight:

1) From the article, at a point it is said that "the merged companies"...
This type of business structure is a "merger". Canadian tire and the Forzani group which includes Sportchek have merged together.

2) How this merger is beneficial to Sportchek is these companies will now have about 1,000 retail locations covering a wide array of products from gardening tools, to golf tees to winter tires as well as almost doubling their original retail locations.

Originally Canadian Tire wasn't very strong in the market for 18 to 35 year of age buyers. With this acquisition or partnership they'll be strong in all ages.

Parents buy kids their first bike at Canadian Tire... but as kids get older their tastes change. Meaning they go to stores with brand named products that are more expensive such as Sportchek. Not only do they want more expensive bikes, they want all the apparel and gear that goes along with their cycling activities.

That’s where Forzani comes into play. By acquiring Forzani they both gain access to a new set of customers that will benefit both of them.
