Our signature State Market Profiles spotlight supermarket and other grocery industry news of interest in that region each month, and our Market Shares enable readers to regularly “check the pulse” of their specific markets.

The Shelby Report also features monthly columns from well-known grocery industry experts, such as Peter Larkin (NGA) and Art Patch, and we publish columns from our editor, associate editor, president, owner and other guest columnists. Our newest monthly column, submitted by FMS, is titled “Pulse of the Independent Grocer.”

All this—combined with our grassroots approach and in-person, in-the-market interviews make The Shelby Report a must-have publication for thousands of food and grocery industry executives each month.
