The BR Club Partner Store program provides bodega owners with a comprehensive package of retail solutions to modernize their stores and help them compete more effectively against large retail chains and big box stores. The package includes:

  • Store re-design and product merchandising expertise
  • Professionally designed signage (including a new awning)
  • Trending hot food programs
  • NRS' retail point of sale terminal
  • Boss Revolution Self-Serve Kiosk
  • Neighborhood marketing campaigns
  • Direct digital marketing to thousands of local Boss Revolution customers
  • Online store for customers to order groceries for delivery or in-store pickup

"The big retail chains want to crush neighborhood bodegas.  Their weapons are standardization and a one-size-fits-all approach to retail," said Elie Y Katz, CEO of National Retail Solutions. 

"We see hard-working and entrepreneurial bodega owners, neighborhood grocers and local retailers as our partners," Katz continued.  "We believe in their bottom-up approach to retail – listening to their customers and catering to their community's unique tastes.  The BR Club Partner Store program helps bodega owners upgrade their stores to offer modern and convenient shopping experiences, while maintaining their stores' authenticity and serving the needs of their local customers."

BR Club is a nationwide loyalty program available in the thousands of stores nationwide with the powerful NRS point-of-sale terminals. The BR Club is growing fast!  It already has over three million members who receive discounts on groceries and promotions on Boss Revolution's calling and payments services. BR Club members that shop at BR Club Partner Stores will receive additional discounts and specials.

"The BR Club Partner Store program provides stores with new revenue sources from efficient, thoughtfully designed spaces for grocery, food programs, and Boss Revolution's calling and payments services," said Jacob Jonas, Director of the BR Club Partner Store program. "When used in combination with NRS' powerful POS terminals, the BR Club Partner Store program can have an immediate, positive impact on the store's repeat customer rate and average spend."
