Saint Ann, Missouri-based Save A Lot announced a partnership with RangeMe, a product discovery and sourcing platform, to scale the grocer’s sourcing efforts for new, innovative products.
“Save A Lot is a limited assortment, hometown value grocer. That means we are laser focused on providing convenience, value and quality products for everyone who walks through our doors,” said Tom Burkemper, VP of DSD and merchandising services.
“The differentiator for us is that through our partnership with RangeMe, we are able to quickly source, evaluate and customize assortment options for our retail partners. 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 offers low prices on high quality private label brands, as well as national brand products, USDA-inspected meat cut fresh in store, farm-fresh fruits and vegetables and other non-food items. That includes providing consumers with products that meet their needs via new product discovery of emerging and established brands.
“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. “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.”
Through RangeMe, Save A Lot will have access to more than 200,000 suppliers and the ability to leverage a simplified submission process for suppliers that are interested in getting their products on the retailer’s shelves.
