Seattle — Nordstrom announced plans to relocate its Nordstrom Rack at The Mall at The Source to the Gallery at Westbury Plaza. The new store will be located approximately a quarter of a mile from the existing location and is expected to open in fall 2012.

The Long Island Nordstrom Rack was the first Rack store to open in New York in 1997. By relocating, Nordstrom Rack will be able to open a new 36,000-sq-ft. store in a new development that is closer to the Nordstrom full-line store at Roosevelt Field. Nordstrom operates three Rack stores and two full-line stores in the State of New York.

Gallery at Westbury Plaza is a new 330,000-sq.-ft., open-air shopping center located off Old Country Road. The new Nordstrom Rack will be located on the second level of the center. Galley at Westbury Plaza is owned and operated by Equity One.

BY CSA STAFF

Dallas — Weis Markets has selected Retalix’s Demand-Driven Replenishment solution to optimize its overall in-stock position and reduce excess inventory and out-of-stocks in its stores.

“We wanted a system that could provide demand-based forecasting and replenishment and assist us in optimizing our inventory. Retalix’s Demand-Driven Replenishment solution was the ideal fit," said Bob Mawyer, VP of information technology at Weis Markets, Sunbury, Pa., which operates 164 stores.

In addition, Mawyer said, Weiss expects the solution to help it drive sales and improve its customer experience by reducing out-of-stocks, while making it operations more efficient and reducing overall costs.

The Demand-Driven Replenishment system is a demand forecasting and store replenishment system based on Microsoft technologies. It is comprised of four modules: Demand Forecasting, Inventory Management, Order Optimization and Analytics. It contains proprietary algorithms to interpret demand and optimize replenishment orders.

Weis Markets plans to roll out the Demand-Driven Replenishment system this year, and it will also be integrated with the other Retalix systems already used by the grocer.
