Later this month, SpartanNash plans to launch its first micro-fulfillment center to fill orders for its Fast Lane online grocery service.
The grocery distributor said Wednesday that it plans to hold a grand opening for the 55,000-square-foot SpartanNash Micro-Fulfillment Center, located at 5199 68th St. SE in Caledonia, Mich., on July 26. Personal shoppers at the stand-alone facility will process Fast Lane pickup and delivery orders for 24 Ada Fresh Market, D&W Fresh Market, Family Fare and Forest Hills Foods stores across West Michigan, mainly in the Grand Rapids and Holland area.
“Fast Lane has been a tremendous value-add for our store guests as the pandemic heightened the importance of safe, efficient grocery shopping, pickup and delivery,” SpartanNash President and CEO Tony Sarsam said in a statement. “The micro-fulfillment center is an exciting investment designed to further elevate the Fast Lane shopping experience as we strive to continuously improve our fulfillment speed and product availability.”Supermarket News
