“There is no doubt that our customers’ food buying habits and sensitivity toward price have changed,” said Ronald Johnson, Chief Information and Supply Chain Officer at Gelson’s. “Clear Demand was the unanimous choice to deliver the pricing and promotions necessary for our growth and transformation.”
According to a press release, Clear Demand’s AI Pricing and Promotion Management and Optimization products will manage the retail pricing strategies across Gelson’s 28 supermarket locations.
