Abstract: This article analyzes the impact of mergers between retailers in a bilateral-oligopoly situation, when producers and retailers are competing over quantity. The authors show that : (i) a reduction in inter-brand competition reduces the individual profitability of in inter-relailer merger; (ii) the formation of central purchasing entity has negative effects on retailers and consumers alike.
