Holiday Cos. and McLane Renew Grocery Supply Agreement

TEMPLE, Texas -- After a successful seven-year relationship, Holiday Cos. renewed its contract with McLane Co. for supply chain services to 458 Holiday convenience stores throughout 12 states in the northern tier of the United States, the distribution company reported.

"We pride ourselves on offering customers a wide variety of quality food, drink and general merchandise items," Brent Blackey, president and chief operating officer for Holiday Stationstores, said in a released statement. "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."

McLane's Minnesota and Northwest facilities will continue to support distribution of a broad line of products for Holiday, including motor oil, health and beauty care, fresh fruit cups, produce, luncheon meats and a host of frozen products, the company reported.

"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."
