Investments in renovations at stores in East Grand Rapids (Breton Village), Holland, Zeeland and Petoskey show SpartanNash remains focused on the customer experience, according to COO and interim CFO Dave Staples, who’s been with the company since 2000. In 2016, look for SpartanNash to remodel its Grand Haven location and focus on expanding offerings for healthy products as part of the in-store Living Well Centers.

"We anticipate modest growth in the economy with minimal inflation in 2016. While this is not conducive to growth in our industry, we do believe it will facilitate continued industry consolidation, and as a result of our merger in 2013, SpartanNash is extremely well positioned to take advantage of such consolidation opportunities. Our industry also is experiencing changing consumer shopping trends like the demand for more fresh, organic, minimal ingredient products; healthy ready-made meals; locally supplied products; and alternative delivery systems.

"This change in consumer demand has created opportunities which SpartanNash has embraced with the launch of our Full Circle organic private brand line and expansion of fresh national, local and private-brand offerings. We also will continue to invest over $70 million in capital annually across our network to enhance our offerings and improve our customers’ experiences. The Living Well Centers in our newly remodeled D&W and Family Fare Supermarkets now carry thousands of organic, non-GMO and gluten-free products and expanded health and beauty offerings."
