The National Corner Store Network is a group of organizations that support corner stores, bodegas, small community grocers and independent convenience stores share ideas and solutions.
There are more than 148,000 convenience stores, plus tens of thousands of corner stores and bodegas in the United States. Small format stores, including independently-owned convenience stores, share many of the same challenges with distribution, wholesale costs, security, funding and policy.
NACS, along with Partnership for a Healthier America, Alliance for a Healthier Generation, D.C Central Kitchen and The Food Trust, collaborate to coordinate in-person meetings, webinars and an online forum for like-minded organizations to share what they are doing to tackle challenges, such as providing healthier options in stores to communities.
Participation in this group is limited to small format retailer operators and organizations directly supporting small format retailers. Group members can access an online community below. New users will be prompted to create a convenience.org profile (you do not need to be NACS member).
