We have sent both new and experienced managers through the Supermarket Director’s Institute. The training helps the newer managers obtain a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities. The experienced managers come back with fresh ideas that directly and immediately improve the bottom line. It is not a question of if we will participate each year, but how many people we will send.

I enjoyed my weeks at SDI both from an educational aspect and the friends I acquired by participating. Thank you all!

I really took a lot away from this 3 week (SDI) program, and would recommend it to anyone. I think we have to work together for the future of our industry, and to be able to continue to compete with the other big chains and specialty stores throughout the country.

Just a quick note to thank you all for the (DMA) instruction over the last 6 months. I was able to take away different skills from each and every one of you. I have already begun to use many of the newly learned techniques in my day to day routine and know it has made me a better department head. I will miss the weekly calls from you all but will make sure to reach out to you with any questions or advice

The (SDI) courses brings together bits and pieces of normal everyday practices (or motions) showing you how they all build off each other giving you the ability to make smart business decisions. The information can be reassuring or a refresher to an experienced retailer but everyone will learn something new about the retail business, employees, customers and even yourself.
Anyone that signs their employee up for the DMA Course will get a professional well informed Manager in return!
