Advertising With Clout

It’s said that as California goes, so goes the rest of the country. The Golden State is home to 12% of the nation’s population and nearly 12% of the nation’s total supermarket sales.

The numbers speak for themselves:

  • California is No. 1 in supermarket sales nationwide. Nearly one-third more than No. 2 ranked Texas.
  • California is No. 1 in total number of supermarkets.
  • Los Angeles and San Francisco are ranked No. 1 and 4 in supermarket sales by market, and supermarkets per market.
  • California ranks as the 8th largest economy in the world.
  • California represents 12 percent of the nation’s population – and a big share of its consumer buying power.

Real Buying Power

Our readership includes key retail executives (CEOs, senior level management, buyers) at all California supermarket chains with 11 or more stores. That represents more than 80% of the stores operating in California.

Readers also include independent grocers, convenience store operators and the state’s major grocery wholesalers. In all, nearly 90% of grocery retailers receive CGA publications.


It All Adds Up

This all adds up to clout you can’t get in one state anywhere else in the country. The largest state grocery market, plus unparalleled access to California’s grocery retail industry, creates the perfect publications to place your advertising. Launching a new product, service, shelf item or equipment? Updating an existing product line? California is THE market you want to penetrate, and there is no better way to reach these key executive decision makers.
