3. Safeway, San Francisco Safeway’s evolving customer-centric approach has provided the retailer with many growth levers to pull on, particularly its clustering, localisation and personalisation initiatives.

4. Nations Fresh Foods, Toronto In one of North America’s most ethnically diverse cities, Nations Fresh Foods aims to bridge the gap between different shopper groups, offering both specialist ranges and mainstream brands.

5. Trader Joe’s, New York No study tour is complete without a visit to Trader Joe’s. Although its small format stores, almost exclusively private label offer and strong value perceptions are not in themselves unique, the way in which these elements are blended together at Trader’s Joes , layered with outstanding customer service creates a differentiated grocery retailing proposition.
