The Path to Purchase Institute's monthly "Retail Intel" webinar series has returned for a second year.

Tapping into the vast content database available to members on, the Institute’s editors give consumer products professionals monthly 45-minute briefings on the strategies and tactics driving success (or failure) at today’s leading retail chains.

The 2020 series has looked at Walmart, Walgreens, Kroger, Albertsons, The Home Depot and Lowe's (now available on demand) and will continue with a retail roundup on June 16, when editors of the Path to Purchase Institute and Path to Purchase IQ will examine trends across top key retailers. The editors will be joined by content partner Great Northern In-Store, a leading designer and manufacturer of merchandising solutions at retail with a wealth of experience in retail marketing and merchandising. You can register here.

You can also use the links below to listen to any of the completed webinars on demand, and Institute members receive access to the deck from each webinar.

During each Retail Intel webinar, attendees: 

  • Gain a quick review of the retailer’s footprint and market position.
  • Examine reports on recent business moves (launches, acquisitions, restructurings) that will impact the company’s strategic direction.
  • Review recent examples of marketing and merchandising programs that illustrate the way the retailer is engaging with shoppers.
  • Discover what all of the above means for CPGs who need to work with this key retailer. 

Institute members receive access to the presentation deck, along with unlimited access to an ever-growing library of articles, images, case studies, research and other business intelligence designed to help industry professionals better understand the increasingly complex consumer goods marketplace.
