Upshop, the leading provider of AI-driven retail software for store operations, is proud to announce that Cub has implemented its Expiration Date Management product across55 stores. The partnership is expected to deliver over $1.5M in annual shrink savings to Cub, with a potential for even greater savings as the program expands into center store grocery. The rollout marks an expansion of the partnership between the two companies, which has been in place for labeling/scales management, recipe management, traceability, and inventory management for more than a decade.
Upshop’s technology makes it easy for employees to execute with efficiency, offering targeted notifications and workflow guidance to ensure that soon-to-expire products are properly rotated and, if necessary, removed from shelves before expiring. This initiative enables Cub to deliver on its freshness commitment to shoppers, ensuring that customers consistently receive the highest quality products.
Following an initial pilot in the Stillwater store last fall, Cub began deployment of Upshop Expiration Date Management in March, with a rollout to 55 Cub stores completed in under four weeks. The program has been well received by employees, who appreciate the ease of use and the ability to better manage inventory.UpShop
