Abstract: We analyze the effect of supermarket entry on small grocery retailers’ exit in the retailing sector in Montevideo between 1998 and 2007. We show that the entry of one supermarket in a small store’s neighborhood increases its chance exiting the market in that year by 1.2% on average. The result is robust to several model specifications, and varying definitions of what constitutes a supermarket.
