Piggly’s Wiggly’s 100 Midwest locations now offer the Healthy Savings program, a wellness program focused on affordable, healthy eating. The program is part of a retail network with 22,000 projected store locations this year.
“Customers were asking our stores if we accepted Healthy Savings,” said Gary Suokko, COO of Piggly Wiggly Midwest. “And we felt we had to be a part of this program to meet shoppers’ needs and help them eat healthier.”
Healthy Savings is a high-engagement, national health and wellness program helping health insurers, employers, government entities and nonprofits make healthier foods more affordable. Members can save more than $50 a week on healthier foods without having to clip, print or download coupons. The technology behind the program is powered by the S3 Solutions Suite developed by Solutran Inc., a Minnesota-based FinTech company.
The more-than-a-century-old Piggly Wiggly Midwest supplies 100 Piggly Wiggly stores in the greater Wisconsin and northern Illinois area as well as 14 Butera stores in Chicagoland. It operates both corporate and franchised independent grocery stores under chain-style management, allowing the strength of a chain in buying and merchandising with locally tailored stores.
