A great college store doesn't just happen

College stores work hard every day to serve students, support faculty, and innovate new ways to help advance the identity and personality of the institution.  And yet many don’t get the credit they deserve.  Why?

Since 1980, The National Association of College Stores (NACS) has conducted a financial survey of its store members to gather collegiate retail information.  Data is collected in many areas-- including sales, expenses, purchases, inventory, store size, and staff levels.

The Independent College Store Financial Survey is conducted each fall. Results are published in the spring and available for purchase through the NACS Store by NACS Full Store members (with non-contract ownership).
