“ARG member stores will be able to offer more savings to their shoppers and will benefit from lower cost of goods nationwide. With RSA and ARG working together, our clients can rest easy knowing they have the best deals and the best technology which will allow them to focus on doing what they do best: selling groceries,” said Ravi Achanta, CEO and co-founder of RSA America.
Alliance Retail Group is headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, and is the largest self-negotiating ad group in the country, with 960 stores in 27 states. In addition to negotiating the lowest cost of goods for independent retailers, Alliance provides services including category management, advertising and operation analytics for independents.
ARG was established in January 2004, with 56 stores supplied by Associated Wholesale Grocers (AWG). Alliance was able to provide these retailers with a business model to help them join marketing forces with similar businesses in order to access the lowest possible cost of goods while maintaining the independence needed to compete in their marketplace.

These solutions help clients maximize customer engagement and identify profit opportunities through its loyalty platform and real-time analytics.
