Supermarkets as Pillars

            Local Supermarkets are always a vital part of every community. Most supermarkets partake in many charitable avenues to help communities in need. When natural disasters cause devastation, it is often supermarkets that serve as a safe haven for community members.

The ‘Fiercely Loyal’ Customer

          With all the changes happening in the supermarket industry, it is easy to be swept up in the new technologies breaching the market. Walmart is dramatically increasing the investment in the online grocery department of their chains. In addition, Amazon’s entry into the supermarket industry with its purchase of Whole Foods has some stores worried about upgrading their online presence.

Transparency in Sustainable Seafood

           In today’s market, consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with a transparency in the items they buy. Shoppers are interested in where the fresh food they’re buying comes from; whether it is in local produce, fresh cut beef cut on site, or the origins of fresh seafood.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Given all that you do for our union family and yours, I wish I could thank you personally.

AmazonFresh Cuts Back to ‘Select Zip codes’

             Amazon recently announced in The Settle Times that they would be “narrowing the range of its AmazonFresh grocery delivery program, cutting service in at least nine states”. Economically, AmazonFresh has had major difficulties. Amazon is trying to balance the cost of the service with consumers, many of whom are already paying a yearly fee.

Peapod, Amazon and Meal kits

           Since Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods over the summer, many supermarket chains are making changes to acclimate to the new competition. Amazon’s entering into the grocery-retail space is impactful due to the breath of Amazon’s capabilities.

"Grocery Wars"

        In an article entitled, Grocery Wars: Supermarkets face new challenges as consumers shop around, Joan Verdon outlines that now, more so than ever, consumers are using the “shop-around” method of supermarket buying. Gone are the days where someone went to one store once a week for the families shopping in a one stop fashion.
