The solution is complete and fully integrated — backed by an extensive Epicor network of consulting, training and support services — helping retailers lead with the information they need to make faster, more informed decisions.
Five-unit D&L Farm and Home, founded in 1987, provides nursery, farm, and feed products along with exceptional customer service and delivery to North Texas.
