Management shakeup

In September 2006, Loblaws president John Lederer resigned by mutual agreement, following numerous quarters of poor results and the stock's drop in value by a third, being replaced by former Canadian Tire retail president Mark Foote. Galen Weston, the majority owner of Loblaws' parent company, resigned as chairman and was succeeded by his son Galen Jr. Alan Leighton, a longtime advisor to the senior Weston, was brought as Deputy Chairman. Lederer's predecessor Richard Currie criticized the move as unnecessary, while Dave Nichol said that management shakeup was overdue.

Much of the results were blamed on Lederer's plan to combat the threat of Wal-mart's Supercenter grocery stores. Consolidating its distribution centres, which supposedly made the supply chain more efficient, resulted in the departure of many of the chain's general merchandise buyers who were unwilling to move. There were numerous delays and coordination problems as suppliers had trouble shipping their goods to stores on time, and Loblaws was forced to markdown it in order to liquidate excess inventory. Expanded its inventory to general merchandise, supposedly to make a one-stop location like Wal-Mart Supercenters, was considered by many customers to be below the standards of Loblaws.

Loblaws Hepatitis A (1402 words)
We believe that Loblaws has built a well-deserved reputation for outstanding products and are working to resolve the situation in a manner that is fair for all parties concerned.
We have also offered to work with Loblaws in structuring an early settlement, and indeed were at the corporate headquarters yesterday and hand-delivered a letter to counsel for Loblaws and its representatives today, a copy of which we are also providing to Toronto Public Health so that we can all work together.
In no way do we wish to challenge Loblaws in the media as doing so is simply unfair when a corporation is sensitive to pressure.
