Dr. Kurt Jetta Addressing The Safeway Buyout In Food Navigator

Written by TABS Analytics | February, 03 2015

TABS Group Founder and CEO, Dr. Kurt Jetta, was recently interviewed by Elaine Watson at Food Navigator, as one of three experts speaking about the Safeway-Albertsons merger. In the article, Dr. Jetta pointed out some of the challenges both Safeway and Albertsons face:

“Safeway is more progressive than Albertsons in terms of infrastructure and IT systems and generally better operationally – and a lot of Albertsons stores need an upgrade. However, while Safeway has tried everything from loyalty cards to digital coupons, premium private label, and so on, it hasn’t really translated into revenue growth.”
