NRS is pleased to announce that Swisher International has entered into a 2-year data license renewal for its point-of-sale scanner data from over 11,000 independent convenience and other small format outlets.

“It is exciting to continue to work with Swisher to unlock the opportunity within the NRS independent tobacco licensed retailers” explained Vanessa Strain, Vice President of Sales with NRS. “Brands that understand the value and upside of these stores and activate the insights derived from our first of its kind data set have enjoyed growth that outpaces the Industry.”

“The NRS data has given Swisher a line of sight into a segment of retail that has been hard for us to read. This dataset has enabled us to both build out brand strategies tailored to the Independent and also act tactically against sizable store-level opportunities,” said Greg Schmidt Senior Director of Business Analytics at Swisher International. “We have just scratched the surface with our efforts,” he concluded.
