SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. -- Stater Bros.' chairman and c.e.o. Jack H. Brown will ride shotgun with company senior truck driver Danny Flores today, as the regional grocer kicks off the process of transferring product from the current Stater Bros. facility in Colton, Calif. to its recently completed $300 million, 2.1 million-square-foot Norton Distribution Center here.
The new dry distribution center is slated to begin operation this month, with the new refrigerated facility set to open this summer. The Norton DC will replace the eight existing Stater Bros. facilities, in Colton, Redlands and Mira Loma, Calif. The name Norton comes from the site's location on part of the former Norton Air Force Base, which closed in 1995.
Stater Bros. moved its corporate headquarters to the Norton site in September 2007.
The largest privately owned supermarket chain in Southern California, as well as the largest employer in both San Bernardino and Riverside counties, Stater Bros. operates 164 supermarkets and employs over 18,000 associates.
