…Your publication is important for every executive to read because the majority of our industry (consists of) regional and independent operators. We need to know what’s going on with the major chains, not just where we operate but also in areas where we don’t operate so we can see the trends developing. It’s for that reason that I rely on The Shelby Report. Jack BrownChairman and CEOStater Bros. Markets
