Three women who help improve shopping for customers of ACME’s 10 stores in Chester County have been recognized for their outstanding retail leadership and named to Progressive Grocer’s 2013 Top Women in Grocery.
Eve Gigis, Janis Levit, and Marianne Nice-Trionfo were also acknowledged for their community involvement and success in the supermarket industry. Progressive Grocer is a leading grocery industry trade magazine and its list pays tribute to the best in the business.
Eve Gigis, an ACME assistant grocery manager, does an exceptional job of managing over 100 vendor accounts in a number of categories and exceeding every goal, says Angie Perez, who blogs for ACME. Perez says she is instrumental in ACME’s relationship with the Philadelphia Eagles, supports community events, and was the driving force behind the “Lace Up Against Bullying” anti-bullying campaign.
Janis Levit, an ACME district pharmacy manager, leads 34 pharmacy locations and is a key contributor in rolling out My Rx Care, a membership pharmacy saving program. Perez says Levit enhances ACME’s wellness programs such as immunization clinics.
Marianne Nice-Trionfo is ACME customer service manager for 110 ACME stores in four states. She was instrumental in instituting the “Stepping Out for Service” initiative where cashiers invite customers to enter their line to enhance their shopping. She is a champion of ACME’s philanthropic efforts including the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Philadelphia, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks in Delaware and New Jersey, Muscular Dystrophy Association fundraising, and the Girl Scouts Take the Lead project.
“We are very proud of their inclusion in the 2013 Top Women of Grocery listing,” said Jim Perkins, president of ACME. “They are truly hard working team players and leaders with a deep understanding of our industry.”
The Top Women in Grocery awards recognize the integral role women play across all areas of the retail food industry.
