Big Y World Class Markets has teamed up with Mansfield, Mass.-based distributor Chex Finer Foods to supply customers with new specialty, natural and locally produced products in all Big Y stores. Chex will provide more than 300 items across several product categories.

“Being able to connect with another family-owned, locally based company is important to all of us at Big Y, and our customers and employees appreciate the difference,” said Big Y President and COO Charles L. D’Amour. "We look forward to working together for many years."

“As two Massachusetts-based, independently owned, family companies, we are delighted to partner with Big Y and the D’Amour family,” echoed Chex President Jeremy Isenberg. “We share many common values and goals that will help Big Y drive enhanced assortment and incremental sales in the specialty and natural food categories. We believe together we will have a strong foundation to build from for many years to come.”
