For Brands And Retailers, The Past Is Not The Future

From Forbes.com on March 20, 2017…

The retail grocery industry appears to be in a state of change. Consumer data trend insights show that for grocery retailing, the past is not the future.

  • On February 8th, Aldi announced that during 2017, it will invest $3 billion for 600 additional new stores, and spend $1.8 billion to remodel and remerchandise the existing store base.
  • Whole Foods announced on March 10th that sales for the 6th straight quarter declined in comparable stores while lowering its guidance for fiscal 2017…close 9 stores and curtail new store development.
  • On March 2nd, Kroger announced that its 14-year streak of ¼ identical store sales growth had ended and that management foresees minimal sales and earnings growth for the remainder of 2017.

I asked long time industry veteran and consultant Ron Lunde to analyze and comment on Prosper Insights and Analytics data in light of the changing retail environment.
