TAMPA, Fla. - Wholly owned Delhaize America subsidiary Sweetbay/Kash n' Karry, based here, has chosen Retalix StoreLine Linux-based POS for rollout throughout its Florida stores.
Retalix StoreLine is already up and running in the new Sweetbay locations in Seminole and Bonita Springs, Fla. Sweetbay/Kash n' Karry sister company Hannaford Bros. Co., a 142-supermarket food retailer in the northeastern United States, earlier rolled out the Retalix StoreLine solution in its stores. Retalix StoreLine is an advanced in-store solution that addresses grocery industry requirements by offering hardware-independent world-class POS, back-office and mobile functionality, ease of use, system robustness and the ability to process critical data in real time across multiple sales channels and formats.
"Based on Hannaford's successful experience with Retalix, we felt comfortable recommending it to our sister company, Sweetbay/Kash n' Karry," said Hannaford s.v.p. and c.i.o. Bill Homa in a statement. "Retalix was able to provide us with the small footprint Linux option we desired, with its StoreLine application. The result is that Hannaford and Sweetbay/Kash n' Karry have the unique benefit of freedom to choose between a Microsoft Windows or Linux operating system while maintaining consistent functionality across the different brands."
"We have been working with Hannaford Bros. for several years now and are delighted that Sweetbay/Kash n' Karry has also selected our solutions. We are positive that Sweetbay will be able to benefit from the reduced cost of ownership of our small footprint while taking advantage of the rich functionality, flexibility, and robustness provided by the StoreLine solution," added Barry Shaked, president and c.e.o. of Dallas-based Retalix, Ltd.
Sweetbay/Kash n' Karry currently runs 103 supermarkets in Florida. Delhaize America, a leading USA supermarket operator with over 1,500 stores in 16 states in the eastern USA, also operates the Food Lion, Hannaford Supermarkets and Harveys banners.
