Almost no one wants to spend time hearing of or worrying about this retail reality. Whether it’s from damage, theft (internal or external), spoilage, date-coded product, or bad ordering, shrink is a bane to profit, and it’s not easy to fix.
Itasca retailers have a different experience.
Think truck-to-shelf: Product is handled once by your team in the store before the customer takes it home. It’s not stored in an overcrowded and unorganized backroom/cooler. The results are truly astonishing:
- Average shrink reduction of 25% in packaged meat and produce
- 10-20% in dairy
- 3% in grocery
One of our valued customers was able to increase the shelf days of bagged salad two-fold by cross-docking store-allocated product!
The ramifications are clear: Inventory optimization from Itasca…Works! Sales are maximized. Orders are based upon consumer demand and there is less back-stock to handle and damage. The results are fresher product for your guests.
Really shrinking shrink. With Itasca, THIS is reality.
