IEC stores make switch to new supplier
STONINGTON—Patrons of Burnt Cove Market in Stonington and The Galley in Deer Isle will soon see new, and more, products on the shelves, as both stores have switched wholesale suppliers.

“[The former supplier] just wasn’t working for us anymore,” said Les Weed, who operates the stores along with other Island Employee Cooperative members. “It was frustrating for customers because several of the products they wanted, we couldn’t get for them, and our supplier wasn’t really able to work with us to get them.”

The company recently switched to C&S Wholesalers, which uses the food club brand Best Yet (similar to Taste of Inspirations at other grocery stores). The brand provides more options across the board, said IEC member Ben Pitts, from 15 different types of ice cream to almost eight different flavors of potato chips.
