“These initiatives are part of our on-going work to strengthen our retailers' operations and bottom line,” said Emile Breaux, senior vice president for AGBR, in a statement. “We have retailers who reduced perishable and overall store shrink by as much as 15%, dramatically improved cash flow and through this training energized entire store teams to grow profitable sales.”

Stores grew sales as much as 5%, he added. “In this market, that’s a big deal.”
