Marcal takes steps to improve recycled paper goods line

BY Allison Cerra

ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. — Marcal has reformulated its Small Steps line, which is made of 100% recycled paper, to make the paper goods better than ever, the company said.

Marcal Small Steps paper towels are stronger when wet, while Marcal Small Steps two-ply bath tissue is softer, the company said. An enhancement to Marcal’s facial tissues also will be implemented.

"These new products advance our brand’s mission to demonstrate how making environmentally responsible choices doesn’t have to mean sacrificing performance or paying more," said MJ Jolda, Marcal’s SVP marketing. "The enhancements give our many fans even more reasons to love Marcal Small Steps, and give others new reasons to reconsider their paper buying habits."

Stater Bros. introduces personal vitamin recommendation program

BY Allison Cerra

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Stater Bros. is helping customers find which vitamin supplements are best for them.

Stater Bros. said that customers who fill out a free, five-minute personal health survey on its website or with one of its in-store pharmacists are provided with recommendations based on their lifestyles and needs, thanks to the retailer’s partnership with Top Care, a vitamins and supplements brand.

The recommendations used in this personal health survey have been approved by health professionals at the University of Illinois and are based on a conservative subset of 25 clinically supportive and science-based supplements, Stater Bros. said.

"Stater Bros. remains committed to its valued customers," stated Jack Brown, Stater Bros. chairman and CEO. "We are proud to offer this innovative program free of charge to promote the health and well-being of our valued customers, and are pleased to be able to provide our valued customers with access to high-quality, affordable pharmacy services."

Consumer confidence receives boost

BY DSN STAFF

WASHINGTON — The Conference Board said Tuesday that its Consumer Confidence Index reached its highest level in eight months as Americans grew more optimistic about the job market.

The index climbed to 60.6 this month, up from 53.3 in December. While that reading surpassed expectations, it still fell short of the 90 level that indicates a healthy consumer mindset.

The January figure was the highest since last May’s 62.7. The index has not risen above 90 since the recession began in December 2007.

However, in the Conference Board survey, the percentage of people surveyed who felt jobs were hard to get fell slightly to 43.4% from 46% in December. The share who expected to see more jobs six months from now rose to 16% from 14.2%.

While confidence has stayed weak since the recession ended in summer 2009, consumer spending has been picking up. During the 2010 holiday shopping season, sales increased at the fastest rate in six years. Economists are hoping that consumer confidence will keep improving in 2011 as the economy begins to show greater signs of strength and unemployment declines.

The jobless rate fell to 9.4% in December from 9.8% in November, but the economy added only 103,000 jobs. Employers added 1.1 million jobs for all of 2010, or about 94,000 a month. The nation still has 7.2 million fewer jobs than it did in December 2007, when the recession began. But many economists expect the nation will create twice as many jobs this year as it did last year.
