Trending in retail
March 2, 2017
National Snack DayOn March 4, the U.S. celebrates National Snack Day. And for the snack category, there most certainly is lots to celebrate. It has shown great strength in recent years, with growth far ahead of the total store. In 2016, same-store sales growth averaged 0.5 percent, with growth pulled down by heavy deflation in meat and several large center store categories. In addition, multi-outlets saw slight volume and unit declines that make for a challenging overall sales environment. Snacks, on the other hand, grew 2.8 percent across multi-store outlets in 2016, according to data insights firm IRI.
