SoSH Post on Supermarket Economics
"I can't/won't talk professionally about anything Kroger-specific, but I can give some general sidebar-type info on the Supermarket business, which might be of interest to this thread. N.B., I'm not actually in the supermarket business, I just work with the industry, so take it with a grain of salt.

"Supermarkets are a very capital-intensive, highly-competitive, low-margin business. It costs a lot of money to build, stock, and staff a supermarket, before you even open the doors. And margins can be very low, often less than 5%. When someone opens a new supermarket, they are often operating on a ~20 year time-horizon, to justify the investment."

How to Tell if That Peach Is Ripe? Ask Southern California’s ‘Produce Hunter’ - The New York Times
As for peaches, she dismisses the red blush that may draw customers. The only color that matters, she said, is at the stem end, which should be yellow without a hint of green.

“Red exterior color was bred into peaches and nectarines,” she said, “because unripe fruit that’s red looks more attractive than unripe fruit that’s pale.”

Many people pinch fruit to gauge its ripeness, much to the horror of farmers. The standard five-fingertip squeeze bruises peaches, nectarines, apricots and avocados. Instead, Ms. Beverlin places a peach in her open palm, wraps her hand around it and barely flexes. If it gives just a bit, “firm, but not hard,” it’s ready.

The Man Who’s Going to Save Your Neighborhood Grocery Store
“We were always asking a different question: What is the problem you’re trying to solve through food?” Kelley says. “It’s not just a refueling exercise — instead, what is the social, emotional issue that food is solving for us? We started trying to work that into grocery. But we probably did it a little too early, because they weren’t afraid enough.”
