Wakefern Food Corp., the technology support, merchandising, and distribution arm for ShopRite and PriceRite supermarkets, said it is rolling out POS upgrades in its stores.
The grocer will install Eugene, Ore.-based Datalogic Scanning’s Magellan bi-optic scanners for its POS upgrades.
“The key factors in our decision to recommend Datalogic Scanning scanner/scales to our ownership group for this major initiative were the past performance of the Magellan 8400 and Magellan 8500 across all bar code symbologies, as well as Datalogic Scanning’s proven track record of delivering high-performance, quality scanners,” said Alan Aront, v.p., Wakefern.
Wakefern has used the Magellan line of scanner/scales for its POS for 14 years. It selected Datalogic channel partner Agilysys Inc.to source and manage the upgrade.
Wakefern is a retailer-owned cooperative comprised of 44 members who individually own and operate supermarkets under the ShopRite banner throughout New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. In 1996, the PriceRite banner, an alternate format store, was added extending Wakefern’s reach into Rhode Island and Massachusetts. As the merchandising and distribution arm of the company, Wakefern, together with its member companies, employ more than 47,000 associates.
