SpartanNash executives and those from some of the company’s most valuable
manufacturers came together to honor the company as Grocery Headquarters’ 2014 Independent Retailer of the Year.
At the Independent Retailer of the Year award dinner in SpartanNash’s hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich., SpartanNash was praised by the industry for its strategic and successful growth. Seth Mendelson, Grocery Headquarters’ editorial director, said the company was selected not only for what Spartan Stores and Nash Finch Co. have accomplished in their respective distribution and retail markets up until now, but also for what they are on target to accomplish as one company: SpartanNash.
Completed in November 2013, the merger between the two powerhouses is predicted to change the grocery landscape as it is known in the Midwest; and with two positive track records that include more than 200 years of combined experience, the industry predicts it to be nothing short of success.
