We are the only store in town!
Garden City, NY (PRWEB) October 28, 2014
NAPW honors Suzi J. Fletcher as a 2014 Professional Woman of the Year. Ms. Fletcher is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in retail management. As the largest, most-recognized networking organization of professional women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 300 Local Chapters.
“We are the only store in town!” says Ms. Fletcher, Owner of C-Store & More, LLC in Sentinel, OK.
Ms. Fletcher and her husband purchased the convenience store / tire shop / car wash, which had been closed for a number of years, at an auction. “We decided to try something new, something the kids could be involved with and help,” she says. “I am a CPA and wanted to spend more time with my kids.“
After doing some remodeling, the Fletcher's opened the doors in January. In addition to being a convenience store where customers will find a vast array of products, including food, snacks, drinks, home goods and sundries, C-Store & More offers automotive services such as tires, oil changes and car washes. Honoring her father’s love of barbecue meats, Ms. Fletcher also offers her customers a variety of fresh meats and sandwiches, which they may order to take out or enjoy at one of the comfortable booths in the store.
In the eight months since they opened, Ms. Fletcher says the store has become a popular destination in the small Oklahoma town. They are now looking to increase their reach beyond the community. “We are on track to get more highway traffic to stop in,” she says.
NAPW’s mission is to provide an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
