Natural catastrophes are unlike most other risks facing retail and food service organizations. Disasters such as floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes are difficult to predict and impossible to prevent. Stores and restaurants can experience significant property damage losses, since many are large, standalone facilities that are directly exposed to the forces of nature. Understanding the values at risk from natural catastrophes and properly documenting losses can be critical to the protection of finances and operations in the wake of a storm.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has designated September 2015 as “We Card Awareness Month,” encouraging Georgia retailers to continue in their efforts to prevent youth access to age-restricted products. “We Card Awareness Month” also commemorates the 20th anniversary of the launch of the national We Card program, focused on helping retailers through training and education.
In Georgia, the retail violation rate for underage tobacco sales was right around the national mark at 10%, according to the federal government’s FFY 2013 Synar report. In FFY 1997 the reported retail violation rate in Georgia was 48%.
“Retailers have made great strides over the years in preventing underage sales and education and training is an important part of that effort,” said Angela Holland, Vice President of Association Services for the Georgia Association of Convenience Stores. “GACS joins Governor Deal in encouraging ongoing training and education, such as that provided by the We Card program, to ensure all retail employees are prepared to identify and reject illegal sales.”
