Discount grocer Save A Lot announced a partnership Tuesday with product discovery and sourcing platform RangeMe that unlocks a “new level of scalability” for the grocery chain, it said.
Save A Lot is "laser focused" on convenience, value and quality, and the partnership will align with that mission, giving the chain access to more than 200,000 suppliers, Tom Burkemper, Save A Lot's VP of direct store delivery and merchandising services said in a statement.
“The differentiator for us is that through our partnership with RangeMe, we are able to more quickly source, evaluate and customize assortment options for our retail partners," Burkemper said. "RangeMe allows us to review vendor submissions at the national, regional and local market level. This helps to ensure we bring a great selection of items tailored to meet the quality standards, and market specific needs of our retail partners and the customers they serve."
Save A Lot was founded in 1977 and has approximately 900 stores in 32 states. The company believes all neighborhoods should have access to fresh, high-quality food options. The RangeMe partnership will continue to offer expanding options, the companies said.
“Save A Lot understands that providing the best products at the best prices is often the driving force behind shoppers' purchases,” said Nicky Jackson, CEO and founder of RangeMe, in a statement. “RangeMe's ability to connect them with an array of suppliers across CPG categories will help aid in their product discovery and scale their product sourcing in an efficient, streamlined manner.”
