Improving Your Specialty Foods Selection

When I started working in my uncle's grocery store, I realized his business model was a little outdated. Instead of adjusting his inventory to the times, he was still carrying products that nobody was buying, and this model was hurting business. I decided to update things with a fresh infusion of specialty foods. I met with a few vendors to discuss what they could bring in, and it was amazing to see how much they offered.
