The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor/analyst Austin Smith and technology editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Austin and Andrew discuss SUPERVALU's reignited emphasis toward the low end of the grocery spectrum. While other companies like Whole Foods and Safeway are looking to the higher end -- and therefore higher-margin market -- SUPERVALU has planted its flag in the cost-conscious realm. The company will cater heavily to budget-minded shoppers and those on government-sponsored programs.Andrew Tonner and Austin Smith have no positions in the stocks mentioned above.
