"The Nutrition Environment Measures Survey (NEMS) Tools are observational measures to assess the community and consumer nutrition environments in food outlets, specifically stores, corner stores and restaurants. The measures focus on availability of healthful choices, prices and quality. The NEMS Corner Store (NEMS-CS) survey assesses the nutrition environments, specifically in corner stores. While similar to NEMS-Store Measures, NEMS-Corner Store also measures canned and frozen fruits and vegetables as well as additional snack and beverage items commonly found in corner stores.
