Product Trends Require Another Pivot at Retail

Posted by Megan Reinertson on July 19, 2021

Covid-19 turned the world on its head.  We're defining new norms and what once made sense, is up for individual assumption and acceptance. Especially throughout the United States.  The Real Estate market had an astronomical increase rate over the last two years with no signs of correction, pet shelters' inventory is at an all-time low (YAY!) and auto-lots are practically begging people to trade-in their vehicles; almost making non-classic cars an appreciating asset.  Analysts are on a non-stop statistical hunt with our consumption and spending. 

What about shopping trends within retail?

Alcohol Sales Lose Spirit: Opportunity at Retail

Posted by Anita Baldwinson on June 25, 2021

Alcohol category

As the country opens up there will once again shift in consumption patterns. Restaurant patios will once again fill. And, as confidence increases, people will move from at-home alcohol consumption to out-of-home consumption.  According to a recent CNN article, alcohol sales fell for the first time since the pandemic began.

A wonderful thing happened this week. 

On Tuesday, June 15th, 2021 the U.S. Senate passed a bill to make Juneteenth a Federal Holiday.  It made its way to the House's steps and was overwhelming voted in-favor of recognition.  Now, we move forward with June 19th being celebrated Nationwide.

A rise in in-store retail shopping is underway. With the Covid-19 vaccinations becoming more readily available and easier to access/administer, people are feeling more comfortable with 'normal activities,' including grocery shopping.  A recent study by Inmar Intelligence found that 27% of consumers are headed back to the stores, while 38% will continue an online and in-store combo. 

But, what does this mean for Grocers and CPG companies?

Why We are Your Trusted Retail Partner

Posted by Megan Reinertson on April 6, 2021

We are ready in a moment's notice.

Crisis can have so many meanings.  At SAS Retail Services, we see a crisis as an opportunity to go above and beyond.  Though Spring is upon us, Winter left some areas with a crisis as a parting gift.  

As a ferocious ice storm blew through the Northwest, one of the Safeway grocery stores in Portland, OR was hit hard.  The roof collapsed, the interior structure compromised and a frontline food establishment was shut down, leaving many without that needed grocery location.

We were called, and without hesitation, our Team began picking up the pieces. Clean-up immediately transpired.  For safety, the interior was only accessed by Albertson personnel and constructions teams.

Consumers, with the change in routine and habits are making different choices than they were even eight months ago. There has been a definite shift where money is being spent and this requires grocery retailers to act and change up stores in response to that shift. I recently attended a Supermarket News industry webinar that highlighted some of those changes. Some were surprising, others were not. Here’s a broad sweep list:
