Why Albertsons Is Serving Up a New Strategy for Plated

With costly subscriptions and meal kits appealing to only some in-store shoppers, the retailer sees an opportunity for a "holistic" home-meal private brand.

Heather Mayo, who previously worked for Sam’s Club, Boxed and BJ’s, will ready former Amelia’s base for growth as Q3 sales swell.

Job listings say the e-commerce giant is seeking contributors to "a vibrant store" opening near Los Angeles in 2020.

The deal with TrueCar—one of several on the way—links the automotive marketplace to Kroger’s shopper base in an extension of its “seamless” strategy.

The retailer's "fresh and friendly" rebrand makes an impression on designers, shoppers and industry insiders, and that's part of the point.

CIO Yael Cosset says flexibility is an underrated strength of the sophisticated e-commerce system that will play a key role in the retailer's online ecosystem.

The retailer's strategic plan didn't include enough room for error, CEO Rodney McMullen confessed, but he is confident in a revised vision and a refreshed brand.

The retailer's new flagship brands, Bowl & Basket and Paperbird, combine value and innovation with modern brand style.

The retailer said comps grew in excess of sales in the period as marketing, merchandising and loyalty efforts took hold.
