Delhaize’s new CEO said new priorities for the retailer will mean shifting resources toward building back market share and profitability at Food Lion, according to Supermarket News.
Frans Muller, who took over as CEO in November, said operations with less share and/or profit potential — including the fledgling Bottom Dollar discount banner — will face review. In the U.S., the plan will result in assortment changes and store format evolution at Food Lion, where price and service investments over the past three years have delivered new sales momentum but “the overall improvement in customer perception has not been enough,” Muller said.
Supermarket News also reported that at Hannaford, price investments will continue and the Hannaford To Go Internet shopping option will be accelerated.
“It’s obvious that Delhaize Group has to address a couple of real issues,” Muller said. “Our profitability at Delhaize America and Delhaize Belgium has eroded in recent years. It’s to a high degree self-inflicted as we had to step up our price investment and promotional activities in order to maintain our market share and improve our revenue performance.”
Muller’s remarks came as the retailer reviewed financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year.
Food Lion has 77 stores that will be testing and fine-tuning various elements of the newly launched “easy, fresh and affordable” brand and store format.
Food Lion has been honored for its private brand, Home 360, in a new book that showcases the 52 best examples of U.S. private brands found on retail shelves today.
Retail marketing and shopper experience agency Theory House said the release of “Fifty2: The My Private Brand Project,” is the first book from retail industry veteran Christopher Durham, vice president of retail brands at the agency.
Durham looks at notable private brands that have become true national brands.
Other retailers whose brands are featured in the book include Target, Staples, Kroger and Lowe’s Home Improvement.
