Last chance: Join future of food webinar
If there was one thing apparent in late October at the inaugural Groceryshop event it was this: traditional food retailers are in the crosshairs of everyone from tech entrepreneurs to non-food retailers and direct-to-consumer disruptors. The steady drip, drip, drip of increased competition siphoning off trips while expenses mount related to serving shoppers in new ways makes this a time like any other in the history of food retailing.
Grocery is an industry on the cusp of a new era, as Groceryshop Co-Founder and Chief Content Officer Zia Daniell Wigder explained at the kick off to the event on Sunday, Oct. 28 in last Vegas. More than 2,200 people attended the future-focused event which speaks to both the angst that exists among traditional food retailers and the opportunity sensed by others eyeing an opportunity to gain share.
For added perspective on the disruption in the space, Retail Leader is excited to be hosting a webinar on Nov. 8 at 2 p.m. EST called, “Foodshift: winning the share of stomach battle.” Be sure to register for what promises to be a lively and stimulating conversation about what next looks like for food retailers.
