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 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.

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.

Grocery workers are essential service providers who many may overlook during this pandemic. They increased their efforts [across the world/nation] while adding in Covid-19 safety precautions of extra cleaning, expanded maintenance and no-contact online programs.

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:
