Chicago, Illinois October 2-4, 2011. Halcyon Shades took part in the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Annual Convention at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois and it was outstanding (although we are still a little jittery from all of the energy drink samples). Halcyon Shades are perfect for convenience stores because they can save the chocolate and other inventory from unwanted heat and UV damage while still allowing store personnel to see parking lots and gas pumps. Woven shades obscure the view and do not provide infrared heat reflectivity like Halcyon Shades do. We met a lot of very nice people from around the world at NACS and we got to spread the word to convenience store facility managers and store owners about Halcyon Shades. Over the next months, you will be seeing Halcyon Shades showing in a convenience store near you.
