Going beyond the check-out line: Glendora Albertsons’ store manager receives industry honor

Got this e-mail Albertsons about a Glendora store director Kathy McClard.

Apparently she received the honor of being named one of the “Top Women in Grocery” by industry trade magazine “Progressive Grocer.”

She received the nomination through her leadership and influence, according to the news release.

I don’t mean to take away from McClard’s accomplishments – I am sure she is proud of the acknowledgment and her hard work – but I had no idea this kind of stuff existed.

Here is an excerpt from the release.

FULLERTON, CA (July 13, 2010) – ALBERTSONS/SUPERVALU announced today that Glendora ALBERTSONS Store Director, Kathy McClard was named to Progressive Grocer’s fourth annual “Top Women in Grocery” listing for her outstanding efforts, involvement, leadership and success in the supermarket industry.

McClard is one of seven women to represent SUPERVALU, ALBERTSONS parent company, on this year’s distinguished list. She was honored in the Store Manager category. Progressive Grocer is a leading grocery industry trade magazine. All of its honorees were profiled in their June 2010 issue.
