Retail Focus 8/15/21 – Grocery Outlet Announces E-Commerce Exploration; Closing a Retail Store

August 16, 2021

In news, we look at Grocery Outlet’s big announcement regarding future exploration of e-commerce partnerships to potentially open a digital sales channel for the first time. Additionally, Giant Eagle introduces a payment format that is a first for grocers, and the USPS announces more seasonal rate hikes for the holidays. In our interview segment, we look back at a 2017 interview with the producers of a documentary following the last ten days of a retail store’s life and the emotional toll it takes on those who work there.
