The AWG Learning & Development Department is here to support our member retailers, their employees and the employees of AWG. We offer a wide range of learning opportunities, from leadership development, merchandising, food safety training, and much more. Our programs fall under three categories: Department Operations, Store Operations and Management & Leadership.

At the foundation of every program is a strong commitment to provide learning opportunities that make an immediate positive impact that will carry far into the future. Our programs are developed and presented by individuals who have extensive, varied experience in the grocery industry. They understand the challenges our members face every day. Class participants also benefit from knowledge sharing with other retailers participating in the program.


We are dedicated to providing relevant, effective learning and resources for both Retail Members and Associated Wholesale Grocers.
