retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Wall Street Journal reports that Supervalu CFO Bruce Besanko is resigning effective next week “to pursue an opportunity outside the company."
KC's View:
The Journal makes the point that this is the third major food business resignation in just the last few weeks - Ian McLeod, CEO of Southeastern Grocers, and Rock Anicetti, CEO of The Fresh Market, both recently stepped down. The story suggests that this reflects the tumult affecting the food retail business ... and if that's true, then I'd expect there to be a lot more job openings in the next few months.
