Visitors to the Convenience Retailing Show got their first glimpse of the Store 2000 web project being developed by the Association of Convenience Stores. Due for launch at the ACS conference, Store 2000 will allow the trade association to use the internet to provide its members with advice on category management issues, training, health and safety, and store development. Members will be able to access Store 2000 via the new ACS web site. Stage one will see the Store 2000 site offer details on the implementation of a category management programme as well as planograms. If retailers require any further help there is an e-mail link to the ACS. David Carter, ACS trade relations manager, said Store 2000 would provide a vital service to both independent members and those affiliated to symbol groups. The ACS web site will contain a newsletter that members will be able to download; information on events; the ACS view on a variety of issues; as well as hotlinks to the web sites of suppliers and other industry organisations. {{NEWS }}
