MINNEAPOLIS -- Despite blizzard conditions that delayed flights in the Midwest, more than 400 Nash Finch Co.-supplied retailers from six Midwest divisions joined with over 400 vendor/suppliers at Walt Disney's Contemporary Resort for a semi-annual, two-day buying event.
With over 200 booths, the Nash Finch Food Show showcased new products and merchandising ideas with a strong focus on perishables. The show also featured a large selection of general merchandise, as well as health and beauty care items, with everything from stuffed animals and children's books to vitamins and hair care products.
Nash Finch also hosted a new marketing planning room for retailers, called the Integrated Marketing Exchange, which featured oversized posters of the front-page layouts to plan 20 weeks of advertising with the Nash Finch Integrated Marketing Plan. The Integrated Marketing Exchange gave retailers a chance to purchase featured items at the best deals.
More than 28,000 pounds of food and perishable products were donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida at the conclusion of the show. Nash Finch will host its next Midwest Regional Food Show Aug. 20 to Aug. 22, 2007 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
