DALLAS-Gourmet Catalog & Buying Group said it has welcomed 42 new store member locations this year.
The new store members are located all across the country, from Alaska to North Carolina. "We are so grateful to welcome these 31 new store owners to the GC family," said Janis Johnson, president and founder of Gourmet Catalog & Buying Group. "The growth within our community of stores and vendors, and the buying power we gain by bringing new members to the group is truly wonderful."
The next Gourmet Catalog event will be the Start the Year Member Conference in January, held at AmericasMart in Atlanta. Store members receive two free hotel nights to attend the two-day event that focuses on networking, new product introductions, and learning opportunities with speakers and seminar leaders. Stores will also experience an all-day vendor showcase where they can have one-on-one time and shop with more 175 vendors, in one room.
