                                     PART I
                                     ------

ITEM 1.  BUSINESS

     Incorporated in Georgia in 1968, American Consumers, Inc. (the "COMPANY"),
operates eight (8) supermarkets within a compact geographical area that
comprises Northwest Georgia, Northeast Alabama, and Southeast Tennessee.

     All of the Company's supermarkets are operated under the name "Shop-Rite."
All of the Company's supermarkets are self-service and are engaged in the retail
selling of groceries including meats, fresh produce, dairy products, frozen
foods, bakery products, tobacco products, and miscellaneous other non-food
items. The Company's supermarkets feature national brand merchandise with only a
minor part of sales from controlled-label, private-label or generic merchandise.
"Controlled-label" or "private-label" merchandise is merchandise purchased from
national or local suppliers under a trade name chosen by the wholesaler
supplying the merchandise. The Company's supermarkets offer milk and certain
dairy products, as well as frozen vegetables and jellies, under the
controlled-labels "Foodland," "Food Club," "Ultimate Choice," "Freshland,"
"Price Saver," "Top Crest," "Top Care" and "Select." Bread and related bakery
items are also offered as controlled-label groceries.

     During the fiscal year ended May 29, 2004, the Company's major supplier of
staple groceries was Mitchell Grocery Corporation ("MITCHELL"), with its
principal corporate offices in Albertville, Alabama. For the fiscal year ended
May 29, 2004, approximately 82% of the Company's total inventory purchases of
$23,209,916 were made from Mitchell.

     Various local suppliers within the geographical area served by the
Company's supermarkets provide the Company with certain perishable items,
including produce, and account for approximately 18% of the Company's total
inventory purchases. The Company believes that there are other adequate and
convenient sources of groceries, including several area and local suppliers,
which could meet its needs. Accordingly, while the Company has elected to
purchase the majority of its inventory from Mitchell for reasons of cost, the
Company is not dependent upon any particular supplier for its requirements of
groceries.

     The supermarket industry is highly competitive and the principal method of
competition historically has been the pricing of groceries. The Company's
current major competitors now include various local and four regional chains, as
well as one major national retailer (Wal-Mart). The nature of such price
competition includes the sale of selected items at below cost prices as
"loss-leaders" or "advertised specials," the practice of "double couponing" or
matching coupon discounts with additional cash discounts, loyalty card programs,
as well as the sale of certain main line items at prices below the Company's
wholesale


                                        1

cost. The Company believes that its major competitors have been and are able to
obtain preferential treatment from suppliers in the form of advertising
allowances, lower prices and other concessions not available to the Company,
which puts the Company at a competitive disadvantage.

     Management believes that, in recent periods, entry into the Company's trade
area by Winn Dixie, Save-A-Lot and United Grocery Outlets, and further expansion
in the area by Food Lion and Wal-Mart in addition to the presence of Ingle's and
Bi-Lo, have created a situation of ongoing price competition and increasingly
expensive advertising and promotional activities which place an operation the
size of the Company at a significant competitive disadvantage. These
developments have resulted in increased pressure on the Company's market share,
sales and profits during fiscal 2004, the effects of which continue to threaten
the profitability of the Company.

     The addition of two stores since April of 2001 and the change in our
principal inventory supplier in March of 2000 has allowed the Company to better
compete in the marketplace. However, in addition to the net loss of $236,050 for
the current year the Company also sustained an operating loss of $226,831 for
the year ended June 1, 2002, due in part to the periodic use of more aggressive
pricing strategies in an effort to compete with larger discount grocery chains
and expand sales at all locations. While we have achieved some limited
improvements in the Company's gross margin in recent periods, these improvements
have been offset by expenses related to the opening of our eighth store in
December 2003 and by same-store sales declines at other locations. Management
actively monitors the Company's mix of retail prices and will attempt to achieve
further improvements in gross margin, to the extent permitted by competition. A
continuous effort is made to improve the gross margin and increase profitability
by obtaining the lowest cost for the Company's inventory. Due to competitive
conditions, however, further improvements in the gross margin may not be
achievable.

     Management believes that competitive pressures on the Company will continue
to increase over time as a result of larger competitors, which are in a better
position than the Company to withstand prolonged price competition, opening more
new stores in the Company's trade area.

     Backlog is not a significant factor in the Company's business.

     The Company employs approximately 103 full-time employees and approximately
140 part-time and seasonal employees.

     The Company believes it is in compliance with all federal, state and local
laws relating to environmental protection. No capital expenditures for equipment
relating to environmental protection are presently anticipated.


                                        2

     The Company is engaged in a single line of business; namely, the retail,
self-service grocery business which is not divisible into separate segments. The
following table sets forth information for the last three (3) fiscal years as to
the total sales and revenue of the Company contributed by each class of products

The remaining information required by this Item is incorporated herein by reference to page 4 of the Company's Annual Report to security holders for the fiscal year ended May 29, 2004. ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA The information required by this Item is incorporated herein by reference to page 3 of the Company's Annual Report to security holders for the fiscal year ended May 29, 2004. ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS The information required by this Item is incorporated herein by reference to pages 5 through 9 of the Company's Annual Report to security holders for the fiscal year ended May 29, 2004. 6 ITEM 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK The Company does not engage in derivative transactions, nor does it hold or issue financial instruments for trading or other speculative purposes. The Company is exposed to market risk related to changes in interest rates primarily as a result of its borrowing activities. The effective interest rate on the Company's borrowings under its Line of Credit Agreements and under its outstanding notes varies with the prime rate. We believe that our present exposure to market risk relating to interest rate risk is not material. The Company does not maintain any interest rate hedging arrangements. All of the Company's business is transacted in U.S. dollars and, accordingly, foreign exchange rate fluctuations have never had a significant impact on the Company and they are not expected to in the foreseeable future. ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA The information required by this Item is incorporated herein by reference to pages 10 through 23 of the Company's Annual Report to security holders for the fiscal year ended May 29, 2004. ITEM 9. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE None. ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES As of the end of the period covered by this annual report, an evaluation was performed, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 13a-15. Based upon that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures are effective. No change in the Company's internal control over financial reporting occurred during fourth fiscal quarter of the period covered by this annual report that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. 7 PART III -------- ITEM 10. DIRECTORS AND EXECUTIVE OFFICERS OF THE REGISTRANT Executive Officers ------------------ Information concerning the Company's Executive Officers is set forth in Part I of this report on Form 10-K under the caption "Executive Officers of the Company." Audit Committee Financial Expert -------------------------------- All four of the Company's independent directors currently serve on the Audit Committee, and each is an experienced business professional. Thomas L. Richardson is the retired chief executive officer of Learning Labs, Inc., a position he held for 27 years. He and Jerome P. Sims, Sr. each have had over 30 years of experience in reviewing the Company's financial reporting process through service as independent directors. Danny R. Skates has 10 years of senior management experience as Vice President and General Manager of Jackson Chevrolet Pontiac Buick GMC, and Andrew V. Douglas has had extensive experience with the business of independent grocery retailers such as the Company through his service as a retail counselor for Fleming Companies, Inc., our former principal supplier. Accordingly, in light of their backgrounds and their understanding of the Company's business, the Board of Directors believes that the members of the Audit Committee will be able to provide effective oversight for the Company's financial reporting process and its relationship with its independent accountants. Nevertheless, the Company's Board of Directors has not determined that any member of the Company's Audit Committee qualifies as an "audit committee financial expert" under the SEC's detailed, technical definition of that term. Code of Ethics -------------- The Company has adopted a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (the "Code of Ethics") which applies to its principal executive officer, principal financial officer and principal accounting officer or controller, and any persons performing similar functions. A copy of the Code of Ethics is filed as Exhibit 14 to this Report.

ITEM 12. SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT The information required by this Item is incorporated herein by reference to the Company's definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Regulation 14A for the Company's Annual Meeting of Shareholders to be held September 23, 2004, under the headings "PRINCIPAL SHAREHOLDERS" and "INFORMATION ABOUT NOMINEES FOR DIRECTOR."
