Everett Griner talks about an up and coming food store challenging a food giant in today’s Agri View.

Challenge to a Food Giant

Many people are not aware of it but Walmart has some strong challenging in the retail business. It is the Dollar Store. There are several reasons. One of them is Dollar Stores are building a strong food business. Haven’t seen any fresh produce but more Dollar Stores are stocking fresh meats and dairy foods. Mrs. Smithfield and Tyson. Those are names you recognize. And look how it is distributed. In my small town there is one Walmart store. One location. We have seven Dollar Stores all over town. See, Dollar Stores can thrive in small towns with populations of one thousand or less. And, their customer base is not just the low paid portion of the population. It is any income group. I mean after all, all of us a looking to lower our food bills, and Dollar Stores are helping to do it.

That’s Agri View for today, I’m Everett Griner.
