“Merchandising With The Five Senses was very insightful. Bundling senses to help sell was amazing. Learning there are ways to bring scents and other things into our store to assist in the selling process was extremely exciting.”

Robin ThompsonRaleys

“We are working on how to increase sales, get more consumers into the stores and how to be different from the other guy. The tools I have learned here (at Supermarket Sense) will help us achieve this in half the time. I am really excited about what I can take home from here.”

Martha E QuinteroEl Machetazo

“The whole merchandising experience (at Supermarket Sense) from cases and the food, to how to reach out to our customers and give them a better store experience and better products, really helps us with growing our sales and operations.”

Chef Joseph KratochwillSomerset Stores LLC

“I would highly recommend Supermarket sense. I feel there is a depth of knowledge here that I haven’t found in other presentations or programs throughout the country, and I have visited many stores and conferences. I am leaving with a highly regarded group of professionals that I can use as a resource going forward.”
