Most of my numbers and rankings come from either SuperMarket News, or Food Marketing Institute or articles on the grocery sector and each of the grocers listed above are ranked in the top 75 grocers in the US. These statistics begin to tell a story of the strength of the grocery store as an anchor tenant in Clark County. First of all, Costco is the 800 pound Gorilla with weekly sales of over $2.6 million per location nationally. To round out the top three grocers in weekly sales are Wal-Mart and WinCo Foods each with over $1 million in weekly sales per store nationally. All other grocers dramatically lag behind the top three. There are other factors that may or may not be revealed in these numbers as they are associated with our market area. Costco is about to have their 2nd store in Clark County, which will be located at the intersection of 192nd and 1st Street. Wal-Mart has two Super Center locations in the county and WinCo just opened their fourth location. On the national scene, Albertsons reveal they have closed over 150 locations and in Clark County they have closed their stores on 164th and in Orchards. Imagine the difficulty the retail tenants are experiencing when the anchor has closed their doors. The next blog in this series will examine the weekly sales and how that impacts traffic into their parking lots. For retailers, the destination shopper means more traffic into their parking lot.
