Convenience stores

Convenience stores are small retail businesses which often have high prices, a limited number of covered product categories and commonly a limited selection of products in these categories. The shops are often opened for longer hours. With the UK’s Sunday trading act the number of bigger stores with longer opening hours has increased. Their competition has cut into the presence of convenience stores.

Recent developments on the market

In the past years, large chains such as Sainsbury’s have tried to capitalize on the trend among consumers towards shorter top-up shopping missions, with an increased presence of smaller shops catering toward these needs. Currently these convenience stores run by multiples, account for about 23 percent of market sales.
