What’s In the Bag – Changing South Bay Grocery Landscape

grocerybagThe grocery shopping landscape evolves in the LA South Bay

HAGGEN

If you’ve visited the Pacific Northwest, the green Haggen sign will look familiar to you. Now in the South Bay, you’ll start noticing them too as the grocery chain converts 7 Albertson stores in South Bay area, including on Pacific Coast Highway Lomita, and Redondo Beach, and others on 25th and Western in San Pedro, and 210th block of Hawthorne Blvd. in Torrance.

According to a Daily Breeze article, “So far, the changeovers have been quick and thorough, replacing Albertsons with Haggen on everything from aisle signs to displays to shopping center marquees.”


ALDI

As reported by the Los Angeles Times, German discount grocer Aldi is opening 45 stores in the Southland, “something that analysts say could force some competitors to lower prices.”

“That’s just the start for Aldi… The company is building a regional headquarters and distribution center in Moreno Valley to support further expansion in coming years, said Jason Hart, Aldi’s chief executive for U.S. operations.

“There is no other place with the same density of people that exists in Southern California,” Hart said in an interview. “It’s an important market with really big potential for us.”

“Aldi is coming to a region with a growing bounty of food options.”


365 by Whole Foods Markets – Threat to Trader Joes?

Whole Foods Market took another big step toward launching its downmarket sister chain, naming the new enterprise 365 by Whole Foods Market.

Per Huffington Post, “the new chain, which is slated to begin opening next year, comes as Whole Foods seeks to differentiate itself amid intensifying competition. The company… has seen its sales growth slow as organic and natural products have become more widely available at mainstream supermarket chains and big-box retailers.

“The new chain may also be inspired by the success of competitors which focus on value and store-brand products, said Jon Springer, retail editor for the trade publication Supermarket News.

“They’ve identified millennial shoppers, younger shoppers who are very particular about what they eat, but also tough about what they can spend on food,” he said.

“But Co-CEO Walter Robb said that while 365 is inspired by younger generations, it’s intended to appeal to anyone who wants a quick, convenient way to shop.”
