ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- NACS needs your help! The annual NACS State of the Industry (SOI) Report, the most comprehensive analysis of the convenience industry's performance, is based upon retailer data captured by the SOI Survey. Retailers can help NACS to continue to develop the strongest metrics for benchmarking and industry advocacy by filling out the survey this year; the deadline is tomorrow, March 16.
By submitting your data each year, NACS can provide same-firm comparisons, top-performer views and regional cuts of the data.
The NACS State of the Industry Report conveys the best possible industry information retailers needs to stay competitive and achieve top-quartile performance. With increasing competition from non-traditional fuel marketers (hypermarkets) and continuing pressures on other key categories, traditional convenience-store and fuel marketers need more responsive, more targeted performance data. Great benchmark information is the best way to design effective strategies to grow market share and profits.
NACS SOI information is based on income statement, balance sheet and productivity data provided by c-store companies, as well as other data sources deemed credible by NACS. All data is kept completely confidential.
Retailers who participate in the SOI Survey will receive a complimentary copy of the NACS State of the Industry Report of 2011 Data and free admission for up to three individuals to the State of the Industry Summit in Chicago on April 3 through 5, 2012. In addition, participants will receive the NACS Factbook of 2011 Data, an annual compilation of all historical data collected through the years via the SOI survey.
