To commemorate its 90th year of continuous publishing, Progressive Grocer’s yearlong 90th anniversary festivities get underway this month, with the first in a series of decade-by-decade retrospectives illustrating how America’s supermarkets — and the suppliers that serve them — have kept pace with the times.
PG’s January 2012 issue kicks off the series with a look back at the 1920s -- a decade of promise in America and a time when the grocery industry was on the verge of some exciting changes of its own.
The print publication’s decade-specific monthly 90th-anniversary series will culminate with a special keepsake networking issue in late 2012. This issue will chronicle the evolving U.S. grocery industry, with a special focus on its most historically influential leaders, along with guest essays penned by select experts and thought leaders from all walks of the industry.
PG’s 90th anniversary celebration includes a dedicated microsite that will showcase the significant role U.S. supermarket industry trading partners have played in shaping American culture, commerce and community.
