October 11, 2017

​ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Convenience is one of today’s buzzwords—nearly every retail business touts how its products or services offer convenience to the customer. In this increasingly crowded marketplace of convenience, how can convenience stores stay relevant? Find out at the “Convergence on Convenience: Maintaining Our Ownership of Convenience at a Time When Every Retailer is Striving to be More Convenient” education session taking place October 17 at the upcoming NACS Show in Chicago.

The session will cover how retailers have redefined convenience and provide strategies for staying connected with customers. Moderator Bob Graczyk, vice president of human resources for QuickCheck Corporation, and speaker David Portalatin, vice president and food industry analyst for The NPD Group, Inc., will share the history of convenience stores as well as discuss recent retail shifts that have disrupted traditional foot traffic. They will also share examples of how retailers are innovating and adapting in this changing market.
