It is always tragic when we lose a member of law enforcement in the line of duty, but this loss has a significant personal impact for the team members of Fresh Market and Associated Food Stores.

Officer Nate Lyday, was a former team member that was respected and revered by those who interacted with him at the East Ogden location of Fresh Market. When he left Fresh Market, it was to assume his new role as an officer with the Ogden Police Department—a new chapter he was excited to start.

This tragic incident is also being felt at our South Ogden location of Fresh Market, where Officer Lyday’s wife is also a team member. We want her to know that the Associated Food Stores family is rallying around her to provide love and support as she faces this unimaginable heartbreak. We know there are no words that will reduce the pain this family is experiencing, but we are here to support however we can.

 

Utah state officials recently announced the “Mask for Every Utahn” program for those who would like a mask but haven’t been able to get one.  

Here is the link to a news article the discusses the announcement

IN A COMPETITIVE RETAIL ENVIRONMENT, TWO MAJOR RETAILER-GROUPS 
COLLABORATE AND SHARE IDEAS FOR SUCCESS

 

SALT LAKE CITY (Aug. 28, 2019) A group of retailers from Salt Lake City based Associated Food Stores (AFS) recently spent a week in Texas, collaborating with executives from the regional retailer Brookshire Brothers, to share best practices, challenges and solutions. 

Roger White, senior VP of sales and category management at AFSshared, “The Brookshire Brothers team provided an indepth look at the organization. However, the process was much more of a collaboration between our retailers and their team members – everyone sharing ideas, asking questions and providing tips for how to compete in today’s hypercompetitive grocery space.” 

The trip was the result of a share group—a collection of AFS member-retailers that meet several times a year to problem solve and share ideas—AFS recently organized. In the initial share group meetings, participants expressed their desire to hold an annual out-of-market trip to learn from retailers in other parts of the country.  

Brookshire Brothers and AFS have collaborated on past projects and have built a trusted relationship. They were a natural choice for the share group’s first trip.  

AFS Retail-Member, Brandon Peterson from Peterson’s Fresh Market shared, “It was a great opportunity to associate with comparable retailers in a similarly competitive environment.”  

During their time in Texas the group toured the corporate offices and local stores, attended a ground-breaking event in College Station for Brookshire Brothers’ newest store that is a partnership with the Texas A & M University System and had meetings with executive staff members. 

The support provided by Brookshire Brothers executive staff members John Alston, president and CEO; Sally Alvis, Senior Director of Marketing and Community Relations; and Luke Gustafson, vice president of retail operations was key in making the experience a success for both groups.  

David Rice, president of Associated Retail Operations and senior vice president of Associated Food Stores, expressed, “We are truly appreciative of Brookshire Brothers hospitality and transparency. We are grateful for John Alston’s continued partnership and we look forward to finding additional ways to collaborate with one another to better the independent cause.”
