SpartanNash Expands Robot-Supported Inventory Insights to 75 Stores

Following a 15-store pilot project that kicked off in May 2023, SpartanNash has deployed Tally, an autonomous inventory robot, in 60 more company-operated stores across the Midwest. The retailer operates 144 supermarkets, mostly under the Family Fare, Martin’s Super Markets and D&W Fresh Market banners.

The robots from Simbe support the solution provider’s Store Intelligence platform, providing real-time inventory insights to better inform product stocking, ordering, merchandising and ecommerce fulfillment.

“The success of that [initial] launch motivated us to expand Tally across more locations, to help associates save time in inventory tracking and spend more time on the floor serving our store guests,” said Tom Swanson, EVP, Corporate Retail at SpartanNash in a statement. “The real-time data intelligence Tally provides helps ensure our store guests’ favorite items always stay fresh, are adequately stocked and priced competitively, helping us deliver the ingredients for a better life.”

SpartanNash also has made recent investments in other food technology solutions, including its deployment of the Upshop inventory and replenishment optimization tool and Flashfood to address food waste issues.
