Grocery Outlet Elevates Product Sourcing with RangeMe
San Francisco-based RangeMe has formed a partnership with extreme value retailer Grocery Outlet.
With more than 300 locations in California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington, Grocery Outlet connects with shoppers who seek deep discounts on unique, name brand products. As a partner with RangeMe, Grocery Outlet also connects with suppliers to provide those products consumers want, bringing the grocery experience full circle.
"We are committed to bringing our customers premium products at tremendous value," said Steve Wilson, senior vice president of purchasing for Grocery Outlet. "And part of that commitment relies on having access to an abundance of suppliers who have high-quality, singular products at the ready. Expanding our options and increasing efficiency with RangeMe means we can truly excel for our customers."
Through RangeMe, Grocery Outlet is able to search through more than 150,000 product suppliers and their 600,000-plus products to find items that will wow customers and meet their needs.
Each Grocery Outlet store features more than 500 "NOSH" items, or products that fall under the natural, organic, specialty and healthy labels. As consumers' desire for healthier products continues to rise, RangeMe suppliers are positioned well to fulfill those needs.
"By partnering with RangeMe, we can continue (to) grow and strengthen our supplier relationships, and already we've discovered products that we feel will meet our consumers' demands and expectations," Wilson said in a media release. "And through this partnership we are furthering how we differentiate from other retailers, and securing our firm position within the grocery industry."
Grocery Outlet's mission to bring unique products at high savings, while maintaining their independent retailer roots is one of the many reasons why RangeMe CEO and founder Nicky Jackson wanted the discount retailer to team with her organization.
“Products that traditionally get underutilized because of packaging changes, overruns in production, or closeouts are now given new life by a retailer that is continually updating its product selection to bring its customers fresh and innovative products,” Jackson said.
