“I have enjoyed the experience since the time I arrived on Irish soil and the opportunity to be here and interact with other retailers who are in the convenience business like we are. To both present what we’re doing, and have an opportunity to network by seeing friends that I know from the industry here in Ireland, as well as making new friends and hearing new ideas – that’s really how we learn and improve our company.” – Scott Hartman, CEO of Rutter’s.
