Regional Grocers Come Up Big During COVID-19 Outbreak

Retailers such as Smart & Final, Schnucks and Rouses are stepping up to support communities during the coronavirus outbreak.

The retailer’s To Go offering, which is back with some restrictions, was shut down March 17 to meet demand in stores.

A financial update details big volume gains in the initial weeks of the coronavirus crisis and underscores grocery's strength in upheaval; costs also rising as the retailer adapts to elevated sales amid safety measures.

Eight of the retailer's Utah locations are distributing one thermometer per family at pharmacy drive-thrus.

The retailer issues a $2 hourly increase through April 18. It also announced an increase in sales for March as consumers stock up, then adjust to safety restrictions.

Improvement in inventory availability, additional staffing and per-customer purchase limits opens the door for Smart & Final to return to regular store hours.

New Seasons Market and New Leaf Community Markets have partnered with Waitwhile to offer shoppers a digital queue option that eliminates lines and promotes social distancing.

The company says a recent walkout by some workers not only had no negative impact on sales but it actually sold more groceries on its platform in a 72-hour period than ever before.

The fresh produce trade association moves to a virtual show that will feature live keynote presentations, roundtable discussion groups, community networking and a robust expo floor.
