retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Arkansas Business reports that Harps Food Stores president/COO Kim Eskew has been named the company's new CEO. He succeeds Roger Collins, who is retiring from the job after 17 tears as CEO, though he will remain as chairman.

Eskew joined Harps while still a college student at the University of Arkansas, and worked his way up through the company, becoming president/COO in 2008.
