Save A Lot Embarks on Enterprise-wide Technology Transformation
Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, announced that Save A Lot, one of the largest discount grocery store chains in the U.S., is deploying an Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform) network to support a technology transformation initiative across its entire organization. By rolling out the Aruba infrastructure in its St. Louis, MO headquarters, thirteen wholesale distribution centers, and nearly 1,000 retail stores in 32 states, Save A Lot will enable more modern, mobile- and cloud-first environments.
As a neighborhood grocer, Save A Lot provides unmatched quality and value to local families and communities. In an effort to become the brand of choice for its customers, the company is currently in the process of transitioning to a wholesale model that is key to its future growth and expansion. A critical piece of this transformation is providing secure and reliable connectivity in its distribution centers where Save A Lot’s product selectors were grappling with a slow and inefficient network. In addition, the company wants to ensure that its new state-of-the-art headquarters, supporting more than a thousand users and their countless devices, becomes a collaborative, mobile-first space.

We aim to show the world once again the magic of Popeyes chicken with our new Nuggets. We believe that these piece(s) of crunchy, juicy delicious chicken will have guests question how they ever enjoyed chicken nuggets before this.” said Sami Siddiqui, President, Popeyes Americas.
Cheerios Returns to Original CheeriOats Name to Celebrate its 80th Anniversary
America’s number-one cereal brand is celebrating 80 years of putting whole grain oats on millions of breakfast tables every morning by reintroducing its original name and packaging: CheeriOats. The brand launched in 1941 and was one of the first cereals made with whole-grain, nutrient-packed oats formed into the iconic Os. The retro, limited-edition box will be hitting store shelves nationally in July.
“Cheerios has always been about the oats and we are using the 80th anniversary to remind consumers that soluble fiber from whole-grain oat foods, like those in Original and Honey Nut Cheerios cereals, can help lower cholesterol as part of a heart-healthy diet,” said Kathy Dixon, Senior Brand Experience Manager for Cheerios.
“With more than 100 million Americans having some form of heart disease, Cheerios is prioritizing the importance of heart health and wants to remind Americans that a happy, heart-heathy lifestyle can be fun, easy, and delicious.”
