Regional Supermarket Chain Saves More Than $4M With Managed Sourcing Services Model

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - November 19, 2015) - Price Chopper Supermarkets, an American-owned, family-managed company since 1932, has renewed its managed sourcing partnership with Intesource, a PROACTIS company, the leading eSourcing services provider for grocers, retailers and restaurants.
