TCSA's 2018 Benchmarking Study is Complete!

The Tribal Convenience Store Association "TCSA" is pleased to announce its third biennial Databook of Tribal Convenience Stores, 2018. This study confidentially gathers detailed operating, financial, and employment statistics from voluntary participants and distributes back hundreds of averages, medians, and distributions of statistics, including:
  • Fuel selling price,
  • Tobacco sales volume per month,
  • Direct store operating expense per month,
  • Packaged beverage inventory turns per year, and
  • Inside sales per labor hour.

The 2018 edition reflects the participation of 10 tribes in Washington and one in California,
representing 31 stores and more than $409 million in total sales. Distribution of the report
is limited to tribes providing data.
