About Shelby


Since 1967, The Shelby Report has been the leading publication for the food and grocery industry, delivering the latest regional and national supermarket news. With five regional editions combining for national coverage and circulated each month to retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers, distributors, brokers and allied companies throughout 48 states, we are “Region Wise. Nationwide!”

…Many years ago I went to a presentation and, on the coffee table, The Shelby Report was there, and I picked it up and it was like finding gold. I had never seen anything with so much information that was relevant to what I was doing.” “…We absolutely love it and count on it for information on how to market our business… Your magazine is an absolute delight to read because it’s easy to read; it’s got, for me, the right information. Even the photography… I love seeing people I know and things like that. Juan RomeroFounder and CEOAPI (Architecture Plus International)
