Abstract: Ecology has recently been grasping for relevance in Tunisia. Additionally, the agglomerations are reflecting on the importance of sustainable development. This study carries out a quantitative study in the 'MONOPRIX' food store in Sfax. The data were collected using sustainable development strategies, which are the alternatives, as well as on the identification of the criteria. Subsequently, the classification and the choice of the most suited preferences to the decision-maker have been developed with the TOPSIS method. The results were not satisfied with the DM preferences. To satisfy this need, we have proposed to integrate the Choquet integral who considered the importation of the dependence relations and coalitions between the criteria by using the Shapley index for the reformulation of the mathematical formula in the ponderation step of the classic TOPSIS. This combination has resulted in a new TOPSISIC approach to outline a better strategy for the MONOPRIX food retailers.
Keywords: sustainable development; MCDM methods; TOPSISIC; Choquet integral; food retailing strategy.
