Launched late February 2013, the tabloid-sized Convenience Store Products is distributed to 60,000 key industry decision-makers. And in 2014, the publication will be distributed six times to give you more product and trend information.

When retailers are looking for a product, Convenience Store Products is the guide to which they'll turn.

Convenience Store Products' focus goes beyond just new products and engages buyers with editorial coverage on the breadth and depth of a product's lifecycle including innovations, perspectives, emerging customer preferences and whether a given trend is waxing or waning. The publications are seamlessly integrated from editorial to advertising. Editorial includes several special departments and breakouts by the industry's top categories.
