Progressive Grocer - September 2017 - 12

What's trending on progressivegrocer.com ...

What is - and will continue - impacting the competitive grocery landscape was of
top interest among progressivegrocer.com's most-read stories during the July 16Aug. 15 time period. In a guest piece commenting on results from Progressive Grocer 's
2017 Consumer Expenditures Study, Pete Killian and Linda Deeken, of The Cambridge
Group, a consulting firm owned by Schaumburg, Ill.-based Nielsen, pointed to fresh
food, the health halo, excellent experiences, instant gratification on the go, and new/
smaller brands as five areas underscoring deeper consumer motivations that will only
continue to affect the competitive grocery landscape in 2017 and beyond. The rest of
the 10 most-read stories had to do with grocer news, some of the more unique being
a Whole Foods shareholder's filing a lawsuit to block the Amazon acquisition, the
opening of H-E-B's first drive-thru for barbecue, robots making rounds at Schnucks
stores to detect out-of-stocks, and an exclusive tour of Lowes Foods' Simpsonville,
S.C., supermarket, PG 's August Store of the Month.
