USRobotics Case Study

Grocery stores need to provide perishable food in a safe and reliable environment, particularly in the cooler and freezer areas of the store. If a major cooler goes down immediate action is required. Broken equipment can cost the store thousands of dollars in loss of product if reaction time is too slow. Management Centers are in charge of monitoring freezers and coolers for a variety of grocery stores, but they are not on-site and need to be able to retreive information in real time – quickly and efficiently from the coolers to alert the store and possibly maintenance crews if something goes wrong.

Case Study: Albertsons stores

When two new owners bought and took over more than 1,760 Albertsons grocery stores in a $17.4 billion deal, they set the stage for potentially big upgrades to the stores’ seafood departments. Supervalu, CVS and an investment group led by Cerberus Capital Man­age­ment of New York purchased Al­bertsons grocery stores, drug stores and distribution facilities in early June. Cerberus named its new holdings Albertson’s LLC, operating out of the former Albertsons headquarters in Boise, Idaho.

Albertsons LLC Case Study

Cerberus, which buys under-performing operations and controls companies worth a combined $30 billion, acquired 661 stores. Supervalu, based in Eden Prairie, Minn., acquired more than 1,100 stores, becoming the nation’s third-largest grocer, behind Wal-Mart and Kroger, and ahead of Safe­way, according to Retail Forward. Officially, both companies are mum about what’s in store for their seafood departments. Insiders say the new owners probably don’t yet have plans, so changes aren’t expected for several months. But the long-term view is another story. Click here to read more…

Case Study on Kheir Zaman: A New Player in Food Retail

Executive Summary : This is a study of an Egyptian company which is contributing to the development of retail trade among low-income people. In the process of giving them better purchasing opportunities it is also developing the capabilities of informal suppliers to be included in the mainstream, formal economy. Until recently the internal food trade in Egypt was largely the domain of the government, through its cooperative stores. There were also small private grocery stores, open markets and peddlers occupying the streets. A major portion of the private-sector market is informal, operating outside governmental supervision of quality and hygiene, and is not reached by tax authorities. Click here to read more…

Case Study on Loblaw Companies Ltd

If you’ve ever wondered how today’s supermarkets, offering a virtually infinite stock of products were born, look to Loblaw Companies Limited. Canada’s largest food distributor was founded in 1919 as one of the first “self serve” grocery stores. This progressive idea significantly reduced overhead and prices, and allowed for rapid expansion to more than 80 stores in just over a decade.

Almost half a century later, the company continued to break new ground in cutting prices by introducing the concept of private labels with its famous “No Name” brand. That brand is now called “President’s Choice,” and is considered the most successful private brand in the world. Today, Loblaw employs over 134,000 employees in 1000 stores, and is one of Canada’s largest private employers. Click here to read more…
