Holiday Companies has signed a contract renewal with McLane for supply chain services to its 458 Holiday c-stores throughout 12 states in the northern tier region of the U.S., continuing the companies’ successful seven-year relationship.
McLane’s Minnesota and Northwest facilities will continue to support distribution of a broad line of products for Holiday that include motor oil, health and beauty care, fresh fruit cups, produce, luncheon meats and a host of frozen products. McLane’s distribution centers use the latest technologies and processes to create one of the most efficient operations in the country.
“We pride ourselves on offering customers a wide variety of quality food, drink and general merchandise items,” said Brent Blackey, president and chief operating officer for Holiday Stationstores. “By taking advantage of McLane’s merchandising solutions, we’ve been able to optimize the line of products we sell and ensure consistency throughout our network. Additionally, their buying power and the close proximity of McLane’s facilities let us experience efficiencies that other competitors in the market just can’t deliver.”
“Optimizing the flow of merchandise is key to broadening sales margins in a down economy,” said Stuart Clark, vice president of sales and marketing at McLane. “Holiday truly delivers a convenient experience to the customer and it has been a privilege to support them through the years. We look forward to working with them as they continue to evolve.”
