"Shopko is making efforts to continue to localize and tailor our assortment for our customers. We recognized the opportunity to leverage APT’s Space Planning Optimizer as a way to accelerate and advance our capabilities to achieve our goals of having more tailored assortments and customer shopping experiences in our different markets. APT’s Test & Learn software has transformed the manner in which we shape and evaluate our key strategic and operational initiatives. The value already generated from using the software made it very easy for us to renew our license. "
