USA: Two Econofoods in Rochester, Minn., are First NFC Stores to Offer Service, Beginning in July
Nash Finch Company, a Minneapolis-based food retailer and distributor, today announced a partnership with the Priceline WebHouse Club that allows customers to use the Internet to name their own price for groceries and then shop for them at NFC owned and operated supermarkets at savings of up to half-off average store prices. The initial stores offering the Priceline WebHouse Club will be two Econofoods stores in Rochester, Minn., beginning in July 2000, with additional supermarkets added throughout the year."We are excited to be the first in the Upper Midwest to provide this value-added, Internet-based service to enhance our customers' shopping experience and help them lower their grocery bill," said Ron Marshall, NFC president and CEO. "This partnership is a win-win for our customers and NFC, and it will give us a competitive advantage in many markets where we will be the first supermarket to provide the Priceline WebHouse Club."
