Independent Natural Foods Retail Association Recognizes Jackson Retailer for Unprecedented Sales Increase
JACKSON TENNESSEE, July 22, 2018 - During its 2018 Annual Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Independent Natural Foods Retailers Association (INFRA) recognized Grubb’s Grocery with it’s award for HIGHEST SALES GROWTH in its size category among its other member stores across the U.S. Grubb’s Grocery’s annual sales growth exceeded that of the other retailers from the 2016 to 2017 reporting period.
INFRA is the industry’s leading Association for independently-owned natural food stores, touting over 250 members in over 350 retail locations across the U.S.
“The award came as a complete surprise to me,” acknowledged Chris Felder, owner of Grubb’s Grocery. “We at Grubb’s tend to focus on opportunities rather than accomplishments, so our growth as compared to the industry norm was out of my periphery. This accomplishment serves as validation that we are indeed on the right track in providing goods and services that meet the needs of the customers we’re honored to serve.”
“We at JDDC work to incentivize new businesses and assist existing ones on growth and development in the downtown area,” stated Matt Altobell, Executive Director of Jackson Downtown Development Corporation. “It’s truly exciting to see one of our local JDDC-affiliated businesses succeed to the extent that they’re worthy of receiving an exclusive award of this caliber.”
Grubb’s Grocery entered the Jackson Tennessee market as the first-ever full service natural foods retailer in June of 2015. The local retailer provides products and services across all major categories: Packaged grocery; dairy; full-service deli and prepared foods; frozen foods; fresh organic and local produce; over 250 bulk foods, herbs and spices; household goods; natural pet products; healthy vitamins and supplements; natural beauty care products; fresh and natural meats - poultry, fish and seafood; craft beer in bottles and served in-store on draft; local whole bean and house-brewed coffees, juice, smoothie and wheatgrass bar, and popular and organic wines.
