Operations director, Graeme Hay said: "This is a one of a kind' service. We want our customers to have the confidence that Aberness can provide the top 50 products every single time. This, in turn, will give Mace shoppers confidence that the stores will always have the right products available."
He said Aberness's installation of intelligent IT systems and major effort by staff enabled the initiative. The key categories are alcohol, tobacco, confectionery, grocery, household, pet products, soft drinks, biscuits, crisps and snacks.
