Marc Poulin, chief executive officer of Sobeys, told analysts consumers are unpredictable and will check prices at different stores, keeping grocers on their toes.

“As retailers, we have to be especially sharp to entice the customer to spend the extra dollar,” he said. “I think the market is getting very competitive, that’s for sure, and it’s the result of the fact that we have a fickle consumer and a lot of square footage being added to the marketplace.”
