Week Six: SpartanNash

The week prior to this as well as this week are some of the largest sales weeks of the year for the grocery business. The snack and carbonated beverage categories in particular have huge volume around the Fourth of July. It is an interesting time to be working because many people take vacations around this time and there is also a tremendous workload that needs to be done. Despite this I feel the week has gone relatively smoothly as we come down off of the crazy holiday time and things start to settle down to normal. I have been analyzing the units sold this week compared to last year to see how we measure up and we are up a few percentage points over last year so we are making progress! We had to make cuts to our AD promotions though this week because we had many items on sale last week which leads to large markdown dollars being spent and now those need to be compensated for in the coming weeks. Hard to believe the internship is already half over and I am really enjoying it!
