The Consumers Share of Spend, Presented at IHA

March 3, 2019

It’s clear that retailers today struggle with understanding the mission of shoppers as they quickly evolve, and grocers are no exception. The economics of retail and the power of big brands are being challenged as the consumer has a new roadmap to find what they need. As Americans are more connected than ever before and with no end in sight, the demand is skyrocketing for convenience, connectivity and personalization. Their willingness to convert to new brands is lessening due to auto-refill and subscription programs. So how are grocers and their suppliers able to gain loyalty and win shoppers back?
