Meet California's Top Retailers

Success in grocery retailing today requires companies to do a multitude of things exceptionally well. Accelerated competition, divided customer economies and new shopping behaviors empowered by mobile technologies have created an extraordinarily complex business atmosphere.

Creating the perfect retail performance requires improvisation and experimental riffs while working in concert with growers, manufacturers and all aspects of the supply chain in a way that is pleasing to your audience and endearing to your fans.

Increasingly, grocers are focusing on creating venues where food takes center stage and seamless logistics create a harmonious customer experience. Successful companies are fine tuning the instruments of digital marketing, employee training, store design, healthful assortment, and blending center and perimeter priorities to strike just the right chord with today’s shoppers.

Come join your colleagues and business partners and uncover new ways to be a retailing rockstar and set the stage for this new age of grocery shopping.
