H-E-B grocery store was named the top U.S. Grocery Retailer surpassing stores such as Amazon, Trader Joe’s, and ALDI.  e global leader in customer data science, dunnhumby, announced the top retailer in its seventh annual dunnhumby Retailer Preference Index (RPI), according to Business Wire.  The RPI is a nationwide study that examines the approximately $1 trillion U.S. grocery market. H-E-B was at the top of the ranking for the third time because the store has “the strongest customer value proposition for the long term,” dunnhumby said in a press release.

 

“This is due to their superior ability to deliver a combination of better savings and better experience/assortment, supported by time savings through superior digital capabilities,” they added. For the second year in a row, Amazon took second place and Costco took third.  The rest of the top ten shops included Market Basket (4), Sam’s Club (5), Wegmans (6), ALDI (7), ShopRite (8), Walmart Neighborhood Market (9), and Walmart (10). “In this year’s RPI, we illuminate how the consumer views the grocery market, and how different retailers are meeting the general population’s needs as well as the needs of different consumer segments,” said dunnhumby’s President of the Americas, Matt O’Grady.  The RPI rating process combined  financial results with customer perception. The report included the largest 65 retailers in the industry that sell food and non-household items.

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
