SpartanNash (Nasdaq: SPTN), the nation’s fifth-largest food distributor and distributor to US military commissaries and exchanges, has signed a long-term contract to be the primary wholesaler to Gordy’s Market, the largest locally owned and operated grocer in western Wisconsin.

Gordy’s Market was founded by Gordon Ray and Donna Schafer in 1966 on the south side of Chippewa Falls and has grown into a family-owned, 21-store/13 express fuel station chain. It will be serviced out of SpartanNash’s St Cloud MN distribution center.

“As a wholesale/retail operator, SpartanNash’s leadership clearly understands what it takes to deliver quality products, competitive pricing, and exceptional customer service,” said David Schafer, chief financial officer for Gordy’s. “We have been impressed by SpartanNash’s leadership, commitment to growth, private brand offerings, and portfolio of value-added services.”

Besides national brand products, SpartanNash will distribute its Our Family brand, as well as Top Care, Value Time, and natural and/or organic and eco-friendly Full Circle brands.

SpartanNash will begin distributing private brand product to Gordy’s in mid-February 2016 and will be servicing Gordy’s as its primary distributor by May 2016.
