Wakefern VP Details ShopRite Private-Brand Strategy
Big changes have come and are coming to ShopRite’s private-brand program. The changes began almost a year ago, when Chris Skyers was appointed VP of own brands for Keasbey, N.J.-based retailer cooperative Wakefern Food Corp., whose members operate more than 270 ShopRite stores in the Northeast
Skyers told attendees of the Efficient Collaborative Retail Marketing’s (ECRM) second-annual Store Brands Leadership Summit, held at Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino on April 8, that he wants to take ShopRite’s store brands to 30 percent market share in the next five years, from their current market share of about 13 percent.
