"Can former checkout girl Judy Spires keep Acme relevant in the age of Whole Foods and Walmart Supercenters?" Phillymag.com
Click here to check out a teaser for this article. I am trying to obtain the issue to pass on some of the information provided. The first two paragraphs online are just some fluff with Judy greeting Acme customers. Not sure if Judy actually answers the question asked in the headline. Judging from past interviews, she will likely talk more about herself than the challenges that currently face Acme. The timing of this article is a bit suspect with Acme's current situation of plummeting market share, rumors of mass store closings and SuperValu's possible desire to unload the company.
UPDATE 10.31.09: Looks like this article was in the September issue which of course is long gone. Looked through the October issue and there was nothing on Judy. Anyone have the September issue? Please write in if you do and let us know if she has ANY plans for Acme's survival.
