AFS Sets Wholesale Sales Record
Associated Food Stores set an all-time sales record the week of November 15 to November 21. With more than $49 million in wholesale sales, the week’s totals exceeded the previous record by $2.7 million.
While ongoing inflation is a factor, the collaborative effort and teamwork throughout the company is driving the extraordinary results.
“It takes a lot of work and great cooperation to keep up with demand,” said Glen Keysaw, vice president of distribution. “The team at the distribution center is remarkable. I’m so grateful to work with them every day and it’s great for us to be part of the larger effort throughout AFS.”
From the distribution center to the corporate office to retail stores, it takes unified energy and commitment to experience these record-breaking results.
“Our stores have seen impressive sales weeks during the last quarter,” said Darin Peirce, ARO president and senior vice president of retail. “The sales we’re seeing could not happen without everyone’s help and we truly appreciate the monumental effort it takes from so many people. It’s great to see the current success and we anticipate the momentum will continue throughout the winter holidays.”
