CHICAGO Â- The 2011 NACS Ideas 2 Go DVD is now available for purchase.
The DVD features the 45-minute Ideas 2 Go presentation that was shown in todayâ€™s General Session at the NACS Show. It can be purchased at the Follett Bookstore booth in the transportation lobby of McCormick Place during the NACS Show or can be ordered after the event.
The stores featured this year all have embraced the concept of selling more fresh foods, including one, Stew Leonardâ€™s, that is featured in the Guinness Book of World Records for selling the most food per square foot in the United States.
"We have a diverse collection of store tours,â€ said Dave Carpenter, NACS Vice Chairman of NACSPAC, introducing the program. "They all are very different in how they run their operations, but youâ€™ll see one thing that they all have in common: a focus on food.â€
The program also featured emerging concepts that are redefining convenience, whether beer caves or drive-thrus, as well as quick take-aways that retailers could implement in their stores tomorrow, many of which could be done at little or no cost.
Since 1994, NACSâ€™ Ideas 2 Go has provided a fast-paced video tour of some of the most interesting, creative and potentially profitable ideas in the convenience and fuels retailing industry.
