2018 Grocers Care Day

Be sure to add Grocers Care Day to your calendar. Scheduled for Tuesday, March 6, Grocers Care Day provides an incredible opportunity to talk face-to-face with your legislators. These individuals decide every year if your business will pay additional fees and taxes, and if local governments will have more or less authority over how you operate your business. This is your chance to connect with lawmakers and to tell them how the laws they are making affect you. Register now!
