To improve on-shelf availability for customers, grocery distributor W. Lee Flowers & Co. will install our Magic computer-generated ordering and DSD receiving systems at its IGA and KJ’s stores.
A wholly owned subsidiary of Alex Lee Inc., W. Lee Flowers & Co. owns and operates IGA and KJ’s Market grocery stores in the Carolinas and Georgia. Its sister chain Lowes Foods also implemented Itasca Magic back in 2019 to ensure quality service and product availability.
“Itasca Retail and its inventory management capabilities helped us maintain superior in-stock conditions during my time at Lowes Foods,” said Chris Van Parys, president of Scranton, S.C.-based W. Lee Flowers. “I am very excited to implement the systems in our KJ’s and IGA banners, and look forward to the impact they will have on our operations and to our guest experience.
