We Have A Winner!!   The WGA grocery industry awards continue this week with the surprise announcement in Waukesha. Long time veteran of the grocery industry, Bob Fleming, was awarded a 2014 Excellence in Operations award. Doug Witczak of Supervalu nominated Bob. Recognized for his commitment to his customers and associates, Bob has also led the way raising over $475,000 for Muscular Dystrophy efforts. Bob and Kurt Rautenberg worked together running a number of stores. Bob now owns both stores in Waukesha. Bob has been in the industry for 40 years and served on the WGA Board many years ago. Read the WGA's Weekly Special next week for more information on our award winner, Bob Fleming.



What Next?   The property owner in Green Bay where Wal-Mart Stores Inc. hoped to build a store, said he does not believe the retailer will make another pitch after the Green Bay City Council voted to deny its rezoning request. Walmart officials, who have declined to say whether it will come up with an alternative, hoped to build a 154,000-square-foot store to sell groceries and other merchandise reports the Milwaukee Biz Journal. Read more in the Green Bay Press Gazette.

Thank You!     Many thanks to Mark Tietz, owner of the Sheboygan Piggly Wiggly, for supplying water, apples and power bars to the group of volunteers that joined Wisconsin's First Lady Tonette Walker on her "Walk With Walker" program which promotes Wisconsin's tourism spots across the state. Thanks also to Paul Schlaefer and the Princeton Piggly Wiggly for supplying the same refreshments to the group on the walk in their area! Grocers always answer the call!!
