"Supporting our customers and the communities they live in is integral
to our founding mission as a brand," stated New Seasons Market Senior
Marketing Director, Katie MacDonald. "Clutch's technology can help us do
this in entirely new ways through a better understanding of their needs."

New Seasons will leverage Clutch's CRM abilities to centralize all
transaction, SKU, and loyalty data in a single place in order to better
understand customer behavior. From there, Clutch will design and
institute new campaigns that employ ongoing customer insights,
empowering New Seasons Market to provide more relevant and personalized
communications across channels.

These initiatives will allow New Seasons to build a comprehensive
database with a complete list of customer preferences, enabling the
brand to provide highly relevant product offers that better serve their
unique communities across Oregon, Washington and California.

According to Clutch CEO Ned Moore, Grocery represents an important new
vertical that will greatly benefit from data-driven marketing
strategies. "New Seasons is our second grocery customer, and while we've
seen a lot of success in that industry already, there's potential to do
so much more." He continued, "We see every addition to the Clutch family
as a great learning opportunity on both sides, so we are very much
looking forward to developing a long-term and successful relationship
with New Seasons Market!"

About New Seasons Market

New Seasons Market is a West Coast neighborhood grocer with a
people-first culture that builds and sustains relationships for the
greater good. The world's first B Corp grocery store, the company places
as much value on taking care of its staff, its community and the
environment as it does on growing and operating its business, resulting
in genuine relationships between staff, vendors and customers. A
respected champion of the regional food economy, it partners with
farmers, ranchers and producers to deliver the best of the region, and
pairs local, organic favorites with grocery classics to offer customers
choice, value and flexibility. New Seasons started with a single store
in Portland, Ore., in 2000 when three families and 50 friends united
over shared values. Together with its 4,000 plus welcoming staff, New
Seasons offers a unique retail experience in which communities come
together to realize the potential of a healthy, sustainable food system.
New Seasons has 21 neighborhood stores in Washington, Oregon and
California, as well as four New Leaf Community Market locations in
Northern California, and commits 10 percent of its after-tax profits
back to the communities it serves. For more information visit
