Convenience Stores as Safe Places

Episode #12: April 18, 2016

A traditional mindset has been to discourage teens from hanging out at retail locations. But today, a number of stores encourage teens to come to their business — at any hour — if they find themselves in a situation where they need help. Convenience stores are playing a role in helping young people find a safe place — and it’s literally changing lives.
