Magic™ Computer Generated Ordering.
EVERY store. EVERY item. EVERY day.
Itasca Retail pioneered store-level, real-time, computer-generated ordering software with its first deployment in 2003 at Price Chopper Supermarkets. It delivered superb returns then and it continues to lead the industry, delivering better than 99% on-shelf availability for our retail customers. Magic™ has been successfully deployed in more than 2,200 supermarkets across North America with more being added every day.
Magic™ CGO is a proven software solution that optimizes replenishment and management of store-level inventory and returns astronomical ROI. This ensures the right amount…at the right time.
Inventory levels change…in the blink-of-an-eye. You often don’t know how fast until you look at the shelf and an important item is missing. We don’t let that happen to you…ever.
Why be a Magician?
Our valued customers enjoy…
- the highest increases in sales,
- the largest decreases in inventory,
- and the best inventory performance
in the grocery industry.
Let Price Chopper tell you more…
Aren’t “blind” anymore. Your inventory system knows the amount of product en-route…and considers it when producing an order.
You’ll always know exactly what’s on-hand (or on-the-road for that matter) in every department in the store.
You’re likely thinking (because almost everyone asks)…

Can Magic data/orders be used with manufacturers?
Yes. Magic™ produces "Forecasted Orders" which are actual orders (see above on Forecast vs. Order) with the difference being they are in the future. So, a Forecasted Order uses current information combined with predicted information to derive the most accurate future order possible. These "orders" are automatically stored in our Central Data Server location, usually in a HQ-based server, and can be used if store connectivity goes down. They can also be sent directly to suppliers as advanced notice of store-level demand. We have a customer using them for the packing of store-level orders for fresh product directly at the product origin - this saved 5 shelf days in the products' logistics.
