Store Brands honored several retailers for their work in private label and beyond at PLMA’s 2022 Private Label Trade Show in Chicago.
The First Annual SBies is an award program designed by Store Brands to honor retailers that continue to find new ways to engage consumers and get them the products they want and need. Unlike other awards shows, the SBies will change annually as the editors of Store Brands each year will identify those retailers worthy of these unique honors.
The event was sponsored by Acesur, PlantCarton by Pactiv Evergreen, Massimo Zanetti, Pacific Coast Producers, and Snack Innovations.
This year’s honorees include:
The On the Mark Award - Sam’s Club
The warehouse club spent two years reinventing its Member’s Mark private label program and its shoppers had a major say in the new selection.
The Eddy Grant Award - Walmart
Don’t remember Eddy? In 1982 he encouraged us to “rock down to Electric Avenue.” Forty years later, Walmart is embarking on multiple trips down the nation’s avenues with the purchase this year of 4,500 all-electric delivery vehicles.
