It is important, especially as I observe MNB's 22nd birthday, to acknowledge and thank the sponsors who keep the lights on around here and make it possible for MNB's readers to get our news and analysis five days a week, 46 weeks a year (more or less).
I'm lucky in that for 22 years, I've had terrific sponsors who have seen the value of MNB and have supported it. These sponsors have been companies with missions and value propositions in which I believe - they focus on moving the industry forward in a variety of ways.
This year, my roster of sponsors has included Associated Wholesale Grocers (AWG), Circular Logic, Daymon, 11 Ants, FMS, Insite AI, Recall InfoLink, Robin Russell Executive Search, Sifter, King Retail Solutions, Replenium, WAFC, Western Michigan University, Webstop, and Accelerate360.
Their progressive approach to the industry is very much on-brand for MNB, and I hope that if you haven't, you'll click on their ads and check out their offerings.
I think your Eyes will be Opened. Which is the point of what we try to do here, day after day.
