AWG supports multiple pricing zones providing our members with grocery, frozen, dairy, and
processed meat margins based on a defined retailer margin need. The maintenance of these
zones is based on item strategies, competitive information, vendor cost changes, and our
professional pricing experience.
Or, AWG members can choose to maintain their own retail pricing with a custom zone, that
can be based on a House Zone but modified to meet the individual retailer’s needs.

Retail Pricing Support
It is imperative that the shelf tag price, scan file price, marked item price, and AWG item
file prices are the same. AWG Electronic Retail Pricing Support provides the mechanism for
insuring that these prices are the same and that the customer pays the correct price for the
items sold in store.
Communication to Stores
AWG offers electronic communication to our stores via StoreFront, an internet-based connection that allows AWG to communicate important information to our stores. With StoreFront, invoices are available to the store before the truck leaves the warehouse. On-line credit requests, order
guides, weekly change lists and weekly statements are also available.
All general news announcements, security alerts, and recall notices are posted on StoreFront as well. New item information is hot off the Category Manager’s desk with on-line ordering for all grocery, frozen and dairy items. Member retailers can also use the Item Catalog Query to look up items in a commodity/sub-commodity grouping or by UPC.
