retail news in context, analysis with attitude

MNB has been informed that Jean Dreshner, a former Hughes Family Markets and Ralphs executive who most recently has been a partner at HOWS Markets in Pasadena, California, which was started by former Hughes execs, has passed away of cancer. She was in her late 50s, and, we are told, was much loved by her company and the broader family of people working in Southern California's perishables food business.
