Steve Junqueiro, president and COO of Modesto, Calif.-based Save Mart Supermarkets, headlines the latest installment of Progressive Grocer and DemandTec’s exclusive executive interview series, “Industry Talk.”
Hosted by PG editor-in-chief Meg Major, the latest Industry Talk interview with Junqueiro will be presented in three episodes, the first of which focuses on several new strategies in play at the regional retailer’s various banner stores in northern California and northern Nevada, including its recently launched Maxx Value Foods format, its evolving and increasingly sophisticated consumer-centric platform and the role the “mega-trends” of health and wellness and organics and natural products are playing in the face of an expanding base of value-seeking shoppers.
Two other segments of Major’s recent interview with Junqueiro -- who helms the multi-banner retailer’s 240-plus Save Mart, S-Mart Foods, Lucky and Maxx Value stores – will continue in the coming weeks, with discussions in parts two and three centering on the company’s strides in building closer connections with shoppers; enhancing its corporate culture; the expanding role of the fresh produce department; practical, innovative customer service solutions; and other timely topics.
The first-of-its-kind executive insights video platform in the retail food industry industry consists of a robust lineup of additional profiles with other industry leaders who sit down to discuss top-of mind issues impacting the supermarket industry will air in the coming weeks.
