The National Corner Store Network is a group created for organizations supporting corner stores, bodegas, small community grocers, and independent convenience stores to share ideas and solutions.
There are more than 153,000 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. To inquire about joining this group, contact Jeff Lenard, VP of Strategic Industry Initiatives, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
