The Independent College Stores Report is a joint ICBA and Large Stores Group (LSG) survey. The Independent College Stores Report is a defining example of the institutional store culture to share success towards mutual improvements. By
centralizing independent college store channel data, ICBA and LSG provide
stores with better and more accurate data and metrics for improved benchmarking
The report includes confidential data about each participating store. It is used for benchmarking, strategic planning and networking. This resource provides members with a road-map for continued success, solid measures of performance and opportunities to learn from one another.
Considered to be one of the most valued membership benefits, the Independent College Stores Report is available to all ICBA members that choose to participate. Each year at the annual conference in February, stores achieving outstanding financial performance are recognized for their accomplishments.
ICBA Partners with KPMG for the Independent College Stores Report Platform
The Independent College Stores Report functions on a database driven platform designed for ICBA by KPMG. Members enter their data through a web interface.
The 2014 Independent College Stores Report opens on Monday, September 15 and closes on Friday, October 31. Results will be available to participating stores
prior to the February 2015 ICBA and LSG meetings.
