Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Salvage Grocery Stores industry has grown quickly over the past five years. During the Great Recession, households began to pinch pennies due to decreases in disposable income and consumer sentiment. Furthermore, the poverty rate increased considerably, forcing more Americans to start shopping at salvage grocery stores. As a result, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to grow at an annualized rate of 5.1% to $4.4 billion in the five years to 2012. While this rate includes an additional 4.9% in 2012, external competition from supercenters and warehouse clubs has been slowly increasing as the economy improves, threatening this industry's growth.
