Drug Stores Outpacing Supermarkets In Food Sales

Aug. 18, 2011

Food sales in drug stores are advancing faster than at grocery stores, according to David Orgel, editor in chief of Supermarket News. To read the article, go to: http://supermarketnews.com/viewpoints/new_proof_drug_0815/

Editor’s Insight: This article addresses the competitive challenge that drug stores present to supermarkets, but refreshment service operators can’t ignore the competition either.

Refreshment service operators must recognize that convenience remains a big driver of consumer buying. Drug stores have positioned themselves as one stop shops, which is why they are grabbing more food sales.

Refreshment service operators need to consider what products they can add to their deliveries that will build their sales. The broader the assortment of products they can profitably offer locations, the better. 08-18-11 by Elliot Maras
