Our understanding of the industry is unrivaled
Introduction

The retail and grocery industry, one of TPG’s primary areas of expertise, continually presents new and unexpected challenges. Recently, major shifts are driven by the global pandemic resulting in consumers changing the way they interact with retailers – placing heavy reliance on e-commerce. This has left retailers with minimal room for error as they pivot and look to navigate a new world.

TPG has led various major brand retailers and grocers across North America through significant industry shifts and continuous technological advancements.  We leverage our significant industry knowledge to provide retailers with the best approaches that fit the current landscapes and strategic goals.

We work virtually and seamlessly alongside our clients to implement workforce management and operating systems to deliver exceptional value through customized, pragmatic solutions.
