Safeway Sourcing streamlines operations on CBX cloud platform
Safeway Inc. is the second largest supermarket chain in North America, with 1,678 stores and over US $44 billion in revenue. Its United States retail operations are located principally in the Western U.S. and the Mid-Atlantic region, while Safeway’s Canadian retail operations are located principally in Western Canada. Competition in the supermarket space is fierce with both general merchandise and dollar stores now operating in the same space, putting pressure on Safeway Sourcing to help the retailer streamline their operations and improve margins.
