Weis Markets Appoints Mike Gross as Vice President of Center Store Sales and Merchandising
SUNBURY, PA - Weis Markets has been fairly quiet since we reported on its first Sustainable Food Retail Certification in December, but recently shook the newswire with a new executive appointment. In an announcement, the retailer named Mike Gross as its new Vice President of Center Store Sales and Merchandising.
In his new position, Gross will be overseeing the day-to-day category management, merchandising, and pricing for the company’s grocery, dairy, frozen, HBC/GM, and adult beverage departments. A press release outlined that he will report to Bob Gleeson, Senior Vice President, Merchandising and Marketing.
Gross’ career spans 25 years in the food retail space. He has worked in store operations, merchandising, and category management at Shoppers Food and Pharmacy, SuperValu, and most recently Cub Foods/United Natural Foods, Inc. in Stillwater, Minnesota.
The new VP bolsters his experience with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Maryland.
Congratulations to Mike Gross on earning this new title!
