“Much has changed across the retail industry at large, and grocery in particular, as a result of the recent pandemic,” Wendland said. “As we highlighted during our 2022 webinar series, shopper behavior has shifted, and the behind-the-scenes operational support requires new approaches and fresh ideas.” He added, “I’m excited about this series because it examines the fundamentals of retailing through an entirely new lens.”
