Last week independent retailers and wholesalers, food retail industry executives, food/CPG manufacturers and service providers came together in Las Vegas for The NGA Show, put on by the National Grocers Association.
The presentations at the show covered many helpful topics for grocery store owners and operators, such as the impact of the past 18 months on the retail landscape and the importance of developing a culture of innovation to help best prepare for the challenges that lie ahead. The show paid tribute to the industry and its employees and the strong role of grocery stores during the pandemic. NGA also discussed its new tagline, “At the heart of the community” to reflect how grocery stores and their employees enrich their communities.
This event featured exhibits by some of the most innovative products and services in the grocery industry that help stores create more convenient and safe ways to shop, from e-commerce to in-store technologies. STCR partners with many of these companies in providing solutions that drive better shopper experiences and more value for shoppers and stores.
