As the retailer continues to build out its expansion plans in the coming years, Big Y Foods’ CEO Charles D’Amour sat down with local radio station, WAMC Northeast Public Radio, to explain how the company’s brand-new 425,000-square-foot distribution center will help further those plans.
“We think we can accommodate another 20-30 supermarkets,” stated D’Amour in an interview with the radio station. “[…] We have 70 supermarkets today. It’s a lot of juggling and a lot of hands, and this new center will make us more efficient.”
Coming in at $46 million dollars, the project itself is expected to be finished at the end of 2019. The new building will be roughly twice the size of its old facility.
Equipped with state-of-the-art refrigeration systems to best protect the variety of fresh foods coming in and out, the center is locked and loaded to provide Big Y with the freshest products possible.
