About Us

Chain Store Age is the nation’s leading provider of retail news and analysis for retail headquarters executives across all sectors of the industry, both in print and online. CSA reports on and analyzes trends and strategies in all areas of store operations and store development, including technology, marketing, human resources, finance, store design & construction, facilities management and real estate.

In addition to a print magazine (published six times annually), CSA offers a variety of digital products, including a rich and robust web site, a daily e-newsletter and category-specific newsletters in store development and facilities and real estate.

CSA readers are corporate decision-makers that set corporate strategies and are involved in capital goods and equipment purchases. It’s estimated these retail executives are responsible for purchasing decisions in excess of an estimated $200 billion annually.

CSA produces the annual SPECS Conference, which puts a spotlight on physical retailing, and is attended by retail and food service executives involved in the planning, design, construction and maintenance of stores and restaurants. It also products X/SPECS, a boutique conference focused on innovation in physical retail.

Chain Store Age was founded in 1925.
