Hello Graeme,

Thanks for your feedback. I've never encountered such international
differences. The only one that is close is that there are two different
supermarket chains called "Netto" here in Germany. But I think that it
should be no problem because after a short research on the Internet one can
find such differences very quickly and since I'm updating the brands
country by country / state by state it should be manageable. I could also
add a new column for such information in my table.

Regards,
Leon
