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:

Albertsons named Top Retailer for 2020

Posted by Megan Reinertson on July 24, 2020

Essential Services are synonymous now more than ever with the year 2020.  Everyday items and tasks once seen as instinctual, are now scrutinized and strategized.  The public demands a constant supply of these services but are at the ready to analyze HOW people involved are acting in their surroundings. fridge 1

Amidst the chaos and uncertainty, the retail and grocery ‘worlds’ stepped up their game.  There was no option of shutting down, only ramping up.  Delivery and carry-out service initiatives were made high priorities.  An increase in personnel and hours were needed to fulfill new procedures.  All of this done with low-inventoried cleaner, gloves and masks.

The art of the planogram

Posted by Megan Reinertson on November 15, 2019

Ever wonder why supermarkets look the same, or how and why product location is universal to certain retail chains?

SAS Retail Services is one of the top experts when it comes to inputting merchandizing plans and executing Planograms, or as the industry gurus would say, POGs. POGs are used in the merchandising industry as an organization tool for stores to take their visual standards and make them come to life!

It’s why you as a consumer can walk into chains across America and know your way around without too many interruptions. Sometimes you’ll see a POG in action with empty shelves, or aisles temporarily denying access. We as consumers may find it troublesome, and scoff at the ‘Please excuse our mess’ signs, but what we don’t see are the many people who make these ‘disaster zones’ turnaround in a matter of hours. What we see as inconvenient, they see as a puzzle, a plan and then a well-executed, team-oriented work-of-art.

As competition increases, we're seeing [retailers] becoming more aware of the importance of correctly merchandising their products. That awareness is leading to better…planograms and other marketing aids provided to retailers directly from the suppliers”

Rethinking Staple Categories For Added Profits In Grocery

As with so many things, Millennials are making changes and redefining how we think about customer experience. Shopper types have changed and continue to evolve. The relentless rise of on-line continues to shape expectations at store level also. Shoppers and consumers are certainly more educated today and peer reviews play into expectations as well creating fluidity of loyalty. No doubt, exceeding expectations at the point of purchase is key in gaining market share, across all industries. For grocers, the opportunities to continue capture this demographic are rife. Most especially, the HBC (health and beauty care) and GM (general merchandise) categories have so much potential to introduce unique products that appeal.
