Get ready to see a lot more private label at Strack & Van Til

Jeff Strack is president and CEO for the new Indiana Grocery Group 18 Strack & Van Til stores and two Town & Country stores. He spoke about the challenges he’s faced and the changes in store at the Morning Business Hour program at First Financial Bank in New York, reported the Chicago Tribune. “We lost 3,800 jobs in 9 months,” Strack told the newspaper. “[I] had to repair [our] relationships with employees and venders and reestablish [our] reputation.” Strack added that “they are going back to a lot of private label Strack & Van Til products. ‘We will have 4,000 of our own brand items,’” he was quoted as saying.
