Marsico says Kmart hired ..., 1 Aug 2010 [cached]
Marsico says Kmart hired Gene Hoffman, a retired president of Kroger and Super Value, to serve as a consultant on the grocery side of the operations.
"Gene Hoffman was the biggest inspiration for me in the business," Marsico recalls. "You couldn't have had a better executive, the best I ever experienced in my retail career. He was a big help to me in building up food service, and a big help to everybody at Kmart."
The first super center opened in Medina, Ohio, in 1991. Because of the difficulty in cracking into the wholesale supply chain for groceries, Hoffman and another Kmart executive worked out a plan to cluster nearly a dozen new super centers in each market to improve distribution and boost efficiency.

FUTURE OUTLOOK: For Kroger to grow over the next five years, it must reassess whether its assortments have become too generalized and if it is adding disproportional costs to its retail execution, notes Gene Hoffman, a former president of Kroger, and current president and CEO of Atlanta-based Corporate Strategies International.Hoffman says over the next few years, Kroger would be wise to focus on creating innovative strategies to replace shoppers lost to Wal-Mart with value-minded customers from lesser-positioned food retailers."This will require Kroger CEO Joe Pichler to be a visible leader in promoting Kroger's core ideology-internally and externally-while his team fashions new perceived values that can stand up competitively against Wal-Mart as it moves onto Kroger's turf," he says.
Looking ahead, Hoffman believes Kroger has the skills and strengths to be the largest value food chain.He says its corporate structure gives Kroger flexibility to move swiftly whenever breakthrough opportunities are envisioned by management."To maintain market share during the next five years and beyond will test the best perceptive powers and marketing acumen of Kroger management, as well as its ability to deftly execute any of its new offensives," he says.
