Cold Vault Forum

Packaged beverages garner the highest gross-profit dollar average among in-store categories, and sales and profits for the category both rose in 2018, according to NACS State of the Industry data. But retailers continue to face a barrage of new products and line extensions, creating an ongoing challenge to select the “right” assortment and merchandise it well in a limited space. Whether you manage alcohol, nonalcohol or both, CSP’s annual Cold Vault Forum is where you can collaborate with suppliers and fellow retailers and share ideas for boosting your cold vault sales and profits. CSP brings retailers and suppliers together and provides data and insights on consumer behaviors to help operators create the best assortment for their customers, from waters and soft drinks to energy, beer and wine.
