Making your money stretch at the grocery store is a common goal for many families struggling with the economic downturn. Next to a mortgage, usually the biggest expense in a person's budget is the grocery bill.
Family businesses, specialty stores, independent grocers, and large chains are all striving to provide customers with their best shopping experience in order to get their repeat business. To accomplish this goal, executives need to know which areas need to be focused on. For those with dietary restrictions, selection and availability of organic, gluten-free, low sugar, and low fat foods will keep their grocery cash coming in. Larger stores can find out which brands are the most in demand and make gross purchases, passing on the savings from buying in bulk to customers.
Grocery store management can also pitch in on a more hands-on level, dictating opening hours, the number of cashiers that should be open, and how many employees should be stocking shelves, providing customer service, and greeting customers.
