With all of Trigon Corporation's success, it is difficult to identify its weakness. Their weakness lies in their product seasonality. Trigon’ s customers have a huge influence on their operations. Trigon Corporation spends a lot of money and resource to collect and keep track of its customer's buying patterns and preferences. They also shared this data with their suppliers to come up with the best strategies to serve their customers. Trigon Corporation is operating in a very intense industry where they have a lot of competition.

This mission has to remain clear to all those in management and especially all employees asking questions about what is our business? Who is our customer? What is value to the customer? What will our business be? What should our business be? Are questions that the company has raised in creating the strategic plan. Trigon Corporation is the world's biggest retailer because of its strength.
It is hard for any of their competitors to duplicates some of this strength. In the US, Mexico, and Canada, Trigon Corporation was able to do whatever they want in terms of choosing the locations for their stores, suppliers and consumers link network, and set their merchandise at the lowest price. Unfortunately, this strength can not easily be implemented in its international operations. Even though they still make a profit in their overall international operations, they are struggling and even incur a lost of hundreds of millions in the market. The problem with Trigon Corporation is that they can not use the same success factors that work so well in the United States and use it for their international operations.
