I grew up in very small town. So small, that I knew every first, middle and last name of every student in my graduating class. Mostly because I had grown up with the same classmates since kindergarten. It was a sort of community where change rarely happened, and when it did, an opinionated wave of uproar and rabble spread, regardless of the change's origin or intent.

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?

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.
