System Helps Haggen Cut Stockouts

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Haggen Inc. [3] here, which operates 28 supermarkets in Washington and Oregon under the Haggen Food & Pharmacy and Top Food & Drug names, announced it is working with Park City Group, a software provider in Park City, Utah, to improve store inventory and financial performance.  

Driven by consumer demand, the Park City software provides a common view of shelf level inventory, enabling Haggen and its suppliers to collaborate on reducing out-of-stocks and excess inventory, increasing turns and lowering shrink rates.

Haggen said it employed the technology to drive incremental revenue and margin from key traffic-driving categories. The retailer is also planning to implement additional Park City Group systems, including scan-based trading and store ordering.  

“Haggen and Park City Group are collaborating on the execution of several initiatives, from retail analytics to scan based trading, in order to bolster our top and bottom lines, said C.J. Gabriel, Jr., president and chief executive officer, Haggen, in a statement.
