Gourmet Catalog to Host Chicago Meeting

DALLAS-Gourmet Catalog & Buying Group will host a member meeting at the 2013 Chicago International Home + Housewares Show.

The meeting, set to be held Friday, March 1, will bring members together for an "intimate, educational experience," the group said in a statement.  The meeting will include round table sessions, group presentations and vendor tables. Store owners from all experience levels will be in attendance to provide ideas, share their experiences in problem solving and help to create new success stories.

"GC provides the venue and direction, but it is the store members who share their thoughts and ideas, making the meeting and knowledge gained a valuable market asset," said Janis Johnson, founder and president of Gourmet Catalog. "I'm always amazed by the power of bringing everyone together and having a discussion. It's an inspiring way to learn - from other stores who have been there and experienced it all."
