FANT'S IS PLANNING CUT-RATE STORES

Published on .

A new grocery chain plans to open three to five Cleveland area stores that will feature a cut-rate pricing format, reports Crain's Cleveland Business.

Ray Korfant, president and chief operating officer of Fant's Grocery Outlet, said his stores will sell items at prices at least 30% to 40% below conventional supermarket prices and 20% to 25% below discount store or food warehouse prices.

Mr. Korfant said the no-frills stores will carry national brand and private label items that the chain will acquire through closeouts, inventory overruns and product label or formula changes.
