For the CSNews Future Forum Breakout Sessions, retailers and suppliers gathered in small groups to discuss issues in the convenience store industry today and going forward. Steve Loehr of Kwik Trip, one of the session's moderators, pointed out that timeliness is a big factor for new products with retailers. Joseph Farah of Hasty Market Corp. stated that he would like to see suppliers working with retailers to lower the price points and continue driving customers to the grocery store. Since 26 percent of inside sales come from the cold vault, it is a very important category in the c-store retail space, reported Dave McComas, president and CEO of Fas Mart Convenience Stores.
