Grocers Getaways

The AWG Grocer’s Getaways give you the opportunity to explore the world of groceries outside your normal store environment.  Each year we take a group of store owners and operators on a Tour of Stores to see firsthand how other retailers compete in highly competitive markets. 

Our travelers have explored both the east and west coasts and many points in between. These unique learning experiences help you build relationships with other AWG retailers, sharing successes, challenges and ideas.

Time and again retailers have implemented ideas they discovered on a Getaway that contributed significantly to increasing their retail performance and standards.  It’s always fun and rewarding to hear a veteran retailer say “I didn’t think I could learn anything else about the grocery business . . . but today, I did!”
