Wendland stated, “Much has changed across the retail industry at large, and grocery in particular, as a result of the recent pandemic. As we highlighted during our 2022 webinar series, shopper behavior has shifted, and the behind-the-scenes operational support requires new approaches and fresh ideas.” He added, “I’m excited about this series because it examines the fundamentals of retailing through an entirely new lens.”

“Keeping up with shifting shopper behavior is essential to success in retailing, and grocery is no exception. These insights should be a boon to independent operators seeking an edge in a highly competitive marketplace,” said Jim Dudlicek, NGA director, communications and external affairs.
