Message from the president

In 2020, grocery retailers and in particular independent grocery retailers were truly frontline heroes. They never shut down during the pandemic and instead found new ways to serve their communities. The independent retailers were even more pillars of their communities during the pandemic than pre-pandemic.

I want to say a huge thank you to our retailers for the difficult but important roles they have played for our region and our country during this pandemic. An industry that could be taken for granted was put squarely in the middle of the map and they met the challenge. I am proud to know and serve those retailers.

— Eric Winn, president of retail independents at C&S Wholesale Grocers, which operates Grocers Supply Company
