Hy-Vee names Gosch, Tweeten to EVP positions

BY David Salazar
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee recently added two new EVPs that will also sit on the company’s board of directors. Donna Tweeten has been named the company’s EVP and chief marketing officer, and Jeremy Gosch has been named to the position of EVP and chief merchandising officer. The two will be named permanent board members at the Hy-Vee stockholders’ meeting in December, and Tweeten will be added to the board’s executive committee.
 
Gosch began working at Hy-Vee as a part-time clerk in Coralville in 1995, rising through the ranks to become the store director of the Eldora Hy-Vee in 2000. In 2012, he was named VP operations for the northeast district, and was named assistant VP of general merchandise and health and beauty care in 2014. Last year, he became SVP merchandising, with chief merchandising officer being added to his title in early 2016. 
 
“Jeremy has been very successful in every area he has been asked to lead. I am very excited to see the new energy and great leadership Jeremy will bring to this very important position,” Hy-Vee chairman, president and CEO Randy Edeker said. “He has already brought great drive and a can-do spirit with keen insight to complex ideas.”
 
Tweeten joined the company in 2006 at assistant VP communications, and in 2011 was selected to be VP brand image. In 2013 she became VP marketing and was named chief marketing officer in 2013. 
 
“Now is the right time to elevate the leader with the insight, skills and creativity to help guide Hy-Vee forward in our marketing and brand development,” Edeker said. “I know Donna will be a great example of an insightful, strong leader for years to come.”

Weis loyalty shoppers can now earn discounts on future shopping trips

BY Michael Johnsen

SUNBURY, Pa. – Weis Markets on Thursday announced it has upgraded its Weis Reward Points Program to include the option of a 5% discount when customers use their Weis Preferred Shopper Club card and make a qualifying $100 purchase in a Weis Markets store. The discount can be redeemed on a customer’s future order.

“We are in the business of offering our customers more choices, both in the variety of products we sell in our stores and now in the rewards we give back to our loyal customers,” stated Brian Holt, VP advertising and marketing Weis Markets. “Our new 5% discount is designed to benefit our customers who’d prefer to save money on their groceries over gas purchases. Either way, they can achieve significant savings.”

The savings can add up for shoppers. “Weis Gas Reward points have helped our customers save serious money – the average redemption is nearly $7 on a tank of gas. We expect our new 5% reward to generate similar savings,” Holt said.

Weis Reward Points are offered to customers who use their Weis Preferred Shopper Club card when making a purchase at any Weis Markets’ store. The program also continues to offer a twenty-cents per gallon discount for every $100 spent in-store.  Gas rewards points can be redeemed at Weis fuel centers along with Sheetz, Mirabito and Highs’ convenience stores.

Customers can also earn an additional 10 Weis Reward Points for every five participating Weis Brand products purchased.

Sam’s Club’s latest health screenings offer to help destress parents during busy BTS period

BY Michael Johnsen

BENTONVILLE, Ark. –  Sam’s Club on Thursday announced its support for parents during the stressful back-to-school season by offering them a convenient and affordable way to make sure their own health remains a priority. The company will offer free health screenings to adults on Saturday, Aug. 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., while supplies last.

“As the summer winds down, parents typically focus on preparing their kids for a healthy new school year. We think it’s important for parents to do the same thing for themselves,” said Jill Turner-Mitchael, SVP Sam’s Club Consumables & Health and Wellness. “That’s why we are hosting free health screenings this Saturday for all adults, including members and non-members. We hope they help busy parents learn more about the state of their health and inspire them to establish healthy routines.”  

These ‘Back to School, Healthy Routine’ screenings are free, confidential and available to the public at all Sam’s Club locations with a pharmacy (613 locations). The screenings are valued at up to $150.

In addition to free health screenings, Sam’s Club Pharmacies provide other savings and preventive care to each community they serve, such as year-round immunizations for children and adults.
