Maintaining Your Independence: Strategies & Tactics To Limit/Prevent College Store Outsourcing
Presenter: Jon Bibo
As a community of independent, self-operated college stores, maintaining independence by operating a great store and serving customers and the institutions you serve is Job #1. Since ICBA was founded in 1927, its mission has been to demonstrate that a well-run independent store is always the best option to serve a campus and its diverse group of stakeholders/customers. However, we know that college store chains actively pursue opportunities to try and manage more and more college stores. In this session, ICBA will provide and review a detailed checklist ICBA has developed for independent stores to use as a self-assessment tool to help discourage campus administrators from even considering outsourcing. The session will also help you gain a competitive advantage by identifying key areas that the college store chains tend to focus on when making their case to a campus.
