With the dramatic increase in demand for online tools in the retail grocery market, White Rose needed an internet partner that offered a full suite of products and the core infrastructure to make our online channel successful.

MyWebGrocer (http://www.mywebgrocer.com) announces that White Rose has signed on to redo and upgrade its online grocery offerings with MyWebGrocer’s integrated solution.
White Rose will be replacing their current vendor for both the Met and Pioneer banners that White Rose supports. White Rose’s new websites will feature an interactive weekly circular, enhanced email, recipe of the day, the social networking site MyBaby.com and integrated services to drive increased profits through loyalty and club memberships. Implementing these integrated features will give the White Rose customers an easier, faster, and more satisfying grocery shopping experience.
White Rose stands to benefit greatly from MyWebGrocer’s online advertising network as well. “Monetizing our site from day one is a huge value add to our organization, explains, Joe Garcia, Vice President, Information Technology for White Rose. “No other company in the industry affords us the potential to leverage our site financially the way MyWebGrocer can. They have the largest network of retailers in the industry.”
