Magic Roll-Out Expands at Wegmans

WEGMANS  FOOD MARKETS, INC. is bringing the Itasca Magic™ Inventory Optimization solution to all its stores and most major departments.

One of the premier supermarket operators in North America based in Rochester, NY, Wegmans operates 88 stores spanning six northeastern and mid-Atlantic states.

Future phases will extend Magic CGO (Computer Generated Ordering) to general merchandise, health and beauty care, direct-store delivered, and perishables categories – in addition to the grocery, frozen and dairy categories it has rolled out chain wide over the past year.

“We are already better at ordering accuracy, staying in-stock, and reduced overall store inventories.”said Jack DePeters, Wegmans’ SVP Store Operations.

Dave DeLaus, Wegmans’ CIO/SVP added, “Itasca has worked closely with us every step of the way, and
they responded capably to our specific technical and business requirements. One area of current
innovation is the testing of CGO for several random weight produce items. Early results have shown to
be promising.”

“This rollout decision comes as a gratifying vote of confidence from our partners at Wegmans,” said Jeff
Kennedy, president of Itasca Retail Information Systems. “The year ahead offers several excellent
opportunities to further extend the benefits of CGO, and we’re excited to continue this journey with
them.”
