More than 60 store locations across the Midwest are welcoming a game-changing innovation as SpartanNash expands its use of Simbe's autonomous inventory robot Tally.

Tom Swanson, Executive Vice President, Corporate Retail, SpartanNash"We first piloted Tally in 15 stores, and the success of that 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, Executive Vice President, Corporate Retail for SpartanNash. "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."

Following the successful pilot, this opportunity will generate what the company called “actionable inventory insights,” representing continued investment in technology to enhance the store guest and associate experiences.
