Partnership with Unata moves forward as a new customer experience is rolled out

EDINA, MINNESOTA – March 9, 2016 – Lunds & Byerlys, a Minnesota-based, family-owned grocer, and Unata, the award-winning leader in 1-to-1 Omni-commerce solutions, are jointly announcing the launch of Lunds & Byerlys’ new eCommerce and digital customer engagement program. The first four stores are now live at their Lunds & Byerlys Kitchen, Ridgedale, Chanhassen and Maple Grove locations, with the subsequent stores to be rolled out over the next month.

The launch of a new eCommerce platform is part of Lunds & Byerlys’ commitment to provide every one of their customers with a unique and sensational online shopping experience that consistently exceeds expectations.

The new digital customer experience also includes industry-leading features:

  • Ways to Shop: Customers can organize and browse the entire product catalogue by any combination of filters, including previously purchased, on sale, organic, gluten free, local and more. Customers can also sort through products based on popularity, personal relevance, date of last purchase, pricing and more.
  • Order Management and Content Targeting: Unata’s platform includes order management, content targeting and customer service tools through an easy-to-use management and analytics dashboard. Lunds & Byerlys staff can use up-to-the-minute analytics to target & manage promoted content to customers, as well as manage online orders in real time.

“We have been incredibly pleased with the process and partnership with Unata,” said Kevin Baartman, V.P. Information Services at Lund Food Holdings, Inc. “We strive to provide a unique shopping experience for every single Lunds & Byerlys customer, and we are confident the new, comprehensive eCommerce platform will help us provide that experience.
