Grocery retailing has grown into a $355 billion annual business in the US. While some industry observers believe that the grocery industry is recession-proof, that is only partly true. The reality is that while consumers do need to buy food and other household items regardless of economic conditions, and tend to eat out less during recessionary times, they’re highly likely to have shifted their purchasing behavior. Consequently, these cash-strapped shoppers tend to focus more on necessities, cutting into retailers’ overall revenues and profit margins.
