The country's top retail grocers keep on seeing minimal growth as a recession-fueled price-discounting battle continues. The consumer preference for discounted goods pushed many towards larger wholesale chains. To combat this trend, retail grocers lowered prices to keep pace and are now hesitant to raise them again as the recession has eased.

Recent rounds of advertising, increased promotions and market research did provide a spark in 3Q 2010. Some retail grocers such as Kroger Co. have made up ground by increasing their efficiency via improvements to tracking consumer spending. The grocers that best track consumer spending are able to reduce losses incurred from perishable goods going unsold.

Despite an overall consumer preference, a willingness to pay more for organic and locally grown produce is also on the rise. The improved revenues appear to be coming from middle-income families. In 2009, organic foods comprised 3.7% of all food and beverage sales and that number may reach 5% by the end of 2010. Visit us at http://www.wallstreetequityresearch.com/ to understand the catalysts and forces driving or affecting grocery stores stocks.

Overall, retail grocers are benefiting from improved consumer spending, advertising and market research efforts but are still struggling to return pricing to pre-recession levels.

Looking at earnings posted so far for the third quarter 2010, SUPERVALU Inc. saw sales tumbled by 8% to $8.66 billion and the company saw a loss of $1.47 billion.
