While the role of the grocer might seem relatively simple within the four walls of their store or stores, it is also important to keep in mind all that they must do within their communities. The role of the grocer is not simply to offer options to keep their communities fed, they must offer a place for community members to feel taken care of, listened to, and safe. This video delves into the roles grocers play in their communities; to serve as a second home for community members, a haven for local jobs to stimulate the local economy and a stronghold for the successful growth and security of families within a community.
