New extreme value grocer opens as Mill Street Merchants

LogicLane is taking its B2B supply chain and wholesale model to the public with a new grocery outlet.

The first Mill Street Merchants aims to sell groceries at big discounts. The outlet is a test in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, and extends the LogicLane business model to consumers.  

"Our Mill Street Merchants business model is simple," said Patrick Esposito, CEO at LogicLane and Mill Street Merchants. "Tons of great food gets lost in the distribution cycle and goes to waste. Mill Street Merchants helps to eliminate food waste by finding groceries at huge discounts and, then, passing these extreme discounts onto our customers – both businesses and consumers."  

Anything that doesn't get purchased is donated to local charities.

More than 40 percent of the U.S. food supply is wasted, totaling $165 billion annually, according to the company. A significant portion of that is lost in the distribution cycle due to inefficient models. Mill Street Merchants and LogicLane are targeting this $40 billion to by making the system more efficient and available to smaller merchants and consumers.
