Save your company a whole lot of money
Selling bread and bananas may not seem complicated. But in the grocery industry, the profit margin is just pennies on the dollar and often there are competitors on every corner. Success requires insight into consumer trends as well as tight controls over store costs - one of the biggest being energy use. It's why Rosauers Supermarkets partners with Avista on energy efficiency.
Considered one of the most innovative grocery chains in the Northwest, Rosauers first opened in 1934 during the Great Depression, when Mert Rosauer purchased a small grocery store in Spokane. Despite the economy at the time, his store quickly became a success.
Eventually, the company added superstores with full-service pharmacies. It also established Huckleberry's Natural Market, Spokane's first grocer to offer a full array of natural and organic foods. Today, Rosauers operates 22 stores in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Successful growth, however, has only increased its need to save energy.
"Energy for heating, cooling and store lighting is one of the store's highest operating costs," says Rosauers Supermarkets Director and Facilities Manager Ken Groh. "But it's also one we can more easily control, especially with energy-saving rebates and incentives from Avista."
