Webinar 9


Business transitions often present opportunities to think outside the box and partner with community stakeholders. This webinar will feature three distinct case studies of rural Kansas communities that developed creative solutions to establish or retain their local grocery store. This includes a school-run grocery store, a nonprofit grocery store, and a public-private partnership between the grocery store and the local community foundation.
