subject: SUPERVALU Standardization Update: timeline and functional changes
We recently shared with you that we are moving ahead with standardizing our applications to SUPERVALU systems. I wanted to take some time to update you on the progress of this effort.
First, we have determined that we will be taking a sequenced approach to implementation across the West Region so that we ensure the proper support for our retailers. At this time, we’re targeting to standardize the Pacific Northwest DCs in early July, Southern California in the fall, and Northern California in early 2019. We will communicate with each retailer as specific dates are determined for your areas.
