The SN News Quiz: Fresh produce is packing on the pounds

Here are the results of last week’s three-question quiz

Here are the results of last week’s SN News Quiz!

Aldi just acquired Winn-Dixie and Harveys Supermarket — what will the acquisition bring their total U.S. store count to by the end of this year?

  • 2000 stores
  • 2400 stores
  • 2800 stores (yes!)

Which retailer is opening its second-ever infusion clinic, this one in Chicago? 

  • Hy-Vee (right)
  • H-E-B
  • Walgreens

Pets in-store?? This grocer says “no more!” Which grocer recently posted in-store signs gently reminding shoppers that dogs (and any other pets) are a huge no-no?

  • Whole Foods
  • Jewel-Osco
  • Publix (you got it!)

Bonus question: Fresh produce moved more pounds than year-ago levels, with July produce sales at $6.2 billion. Produce sales benefitted from investment in price, plus retailers spotlighting the role in grilling, from campaigns on ‘how to grill veggies’ to on-pack ‘great for the grill’ stickers.

Did you see an uptick in fresh produce sales in July?

  1. Yes (53.8%)
  2. No (30.8%)
  3. Other (write in) (15.4%)

Looks like the vast majority of you saw produce sales on the rise in July.
