ABACUS Deadline July 31

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to receive a customized report analyzing your store’s financial results and comparing them to other stores based on multiple criteria, including sales level, store size, and community type. Submit your business’ 2013 financial data to ABACUS-13 via a secure and confidential electronic form by July 31, and you will receive both the customized report and an executive summary.

All ABA main store members should have received an e-mail at the end of June that included instructions for participating in the ABACUS-13 Survey, as well as the bookstore’s unique I.D. number and links to the secure, online submission form. The sender was Martha Love from the National Association of College Stores’ OnCampus Research, which is collecting and compiling the data for ABA.

Stores are asked to complete the survey as soon as possible, but not later than July 31.

If the person responsible for completing the survey did not receive the e-mail, he or she is asked to check with other colleagues at the store and in e-mail spam boxes. Recipients of the e-mail are requested to forward it to the appropriate colleague, if necessary, as soon as possible.

Questions about completing the survey should be sent to Love at OnCampus Research via e-mail to mlove@nacs.org or call (800) 622-7498, ext. 2448.

Booksellers who have general questions about ABACUS can contact ABA’s Dan Cullen via e-mail or at (800) 637-0037, ext. 7560.
