The 2007 Retail Replenishment ShareGroup will be hosted by LifeWay Christian Stores, which operates a combined 520,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space, from which it fulfills a variety of products including books, videos, gifts, and religious apparel through an online channel and more than 130 retail stores.

A highlight of the Retail Replenishment ShareGroup meeting will be a tour of the LifeWay warehouse facility combined with an operational audit developed through participant analysis of the warehouse layout and product flow. F. Curtis Barry & Company will facilitate a review of operational benchmarking metrics as well as group discussions on hot topics chosen by participants themselves. ShareGroups provide participants a unique opportunity to receive and share benchmark data with their peers in a confidential, non-competitive format. More informally, the ShareGroup will offer extensive networking opportunities among directors and managers of retail warehouses and operations.

Members in the 2007 Retail Replenishment ShareGroup should have at least five retail locations, annual sales in excess of $15 million, and, if they are multichannel retailers, the ability to split retail distribution/replenishment costs from other distribution costs.
