The 2018 Independent
Grocers Financial Survey
FMS Solutions Holdings and the National Grocers Association are proud to present the 2018 edition of the Independent Grocers Financial Survey, which covers fiscal year 2017. This survey is now in its 13th year and has become the leading source of independent grocery benchmarking data.
The 2018 Independent Grocers Financial Survey included results from 139 companies across 35 US States and five Canadian Provinces. The study's goals are to gauge the financial performance of independent grocers and put it in context with economic, political, and competitive factors. This report also examines how the profit leaders operate their business differently, such as their inventory and shrink, and generate more net profit.
