- The meaning of “independent retailer” is more a question of ownership and philosophy of operation, rather than number of stores or type of format.
- An independent retailer is a privately owned or controlled food retail company operating a variety of formats.
- A few are publicly traded, but with controlling shares held by the family, and others are employee owned.
- Independents are the true “entrepreneurs” of the grocery/food industry and are dedicated to their customers, associates, and communities.
