Talking Grocery Business With Jefferies' Chris Mandeville

Analyst sees a 'challenging environment' as retailers play catchup

A need to invest in human and intellectual capital as the business landscape changes has presented challenges to food retailers that might otherwise be benefiting from a strong economy. That’s one message from Chris Mandeville, a financial analyst for Jefferies and the spotlight of WGB’s latest “10 Items or Less” podcast. Mandeville also discusses his views on Kroger as the company approaches a reset of its strategy, how Target found new momentum in local fulfillment and the possibilities for Walmart as it moves to merge the “orange and blue” sides of its respective grocery and general merchandise e-commerce baskets.
