Son of a Grocer, SuperMarket Man, and early President of the Pennsylvania Grocers Association, I admire the Professionalism chains like Wegmans® bring to the retail channel. High time for all Green Grocers, Fish Mongers, Charcuterie and more to take pride in long established professions. No matter what the specialty, I appreciate a maven to answer my questions, advise me, and elevate my own knowledge of food. Damn how I wish I had a snappy uniform in my day, like Wegmans® issues today. Also to work in an upscale Charcuterie, like this rather than just sling cold cuts.

The perfect strategy, this Williams Sonoma Branded Spice Expansion. If you already sell everything necessary, nay, desirable, for good cooking and eating, why not the specialty spices too?

Thomas Markets private labels offerings while promoting within a small footprint but prominent Spice and Condiments Tower. Wood itself has a natural appeal that goes with the offering of spices and condiments.

Wood construction also suits itself to small run, custom display construction. This Spice and Condiments Tower seen at Thomas Family Markets, a Foodtown store, Hazleton PA.
