“We are so excited about this new Retail Board; it is a fantastic mix of returning retailers and brand new members.  This group represents all facets of the demographic of NAG from chains with as few as a handful of stores to those with several hundred locations, and all have deep experience in convenience retailing. Headed by Mary, we are positive that this group will help NAG ascend to the next level and continue its service to small to mid-size chains,” noted John Petersen, publisher NAG/Convenience Store Decisions.
