How to Build Customer Confidence Through Clean Stores

ISSA’s director of education share tips on avoiding ‘hygiene theater’ in grocery.

With an eye on exploring how computer vision can support a cost-focused, high-volume retailer with checkout-free shopping and other potential benefits, Aldi Nord teams with Trigo on a new deployment in Utrecht.

In response to labor challenges and changed consumer shopping habits, most Schnucks stores will close one hour earlier starting Oct. 4.

The company’s current Miami Division president will fill a role previously held Kevin Murphy, Publix’s president.

Schnucks is expanding its use of Simbe Robotics' inventory management robots into all 111 of the St. Louis-based chain's grocery stores.

After a successful pilot of the concept in Minneapolis, the retailer will add centers, which batch and route online orders after they are picked and packed in stores, in Texas, Pennsylvania and Georgia.

The deal will provide automated fulfillment solutions to brick-and-mortar grocers, with an eye toward improving fulfillment efficiency and store conditions.

The program aims to support the industry's growing takeout and prepared meals business by providing operational compliance, food waste tracking, equipment calibration and temperature management.

"Guests turn to Target because of our stores and our digital options, not one vs. the other," Target CEO Brian Cornell says following the company's expectations-busting first-quarter results.
