Description

“For convenience retailers, those consumers incorporating c-stores within their regular grocery shopping repertoire are most important. On this basis, young shoppers – most importantly, the 25-34 age group – should be the focus for retailers.”

– John Mercer, European Retail Analyst

Some questions answered in this report include:

  • Which age groups are worth focusing on?
  • What locations should retailers be targeting?
  • Are there opportunities in petrol forecourts?
  • What are the opportunities in food-to-go and food-service?
  • Is convenience a panacea for major grocers?

Convenience is one of the higher-growth segments in grocery retailing. Its near 5% growth rates are comfortably in excess of the growth for all grocery retailing.

The encroachment of the grocery multiples such as Tesco and Sainsbury’s is changing convenience shopping from a distress or emergency top-up shop to a regular part of consumers’ grocery shopping repertoire. As a consequence, these retailers are helping to grow the sector.

At the same time, the boom in online grocery shopping is contributing demand for top-up shops between occasional internet shops.

These factors mean fresh foods, meal solutions and food-to-go are increasingly important. They also mean that not all convenience retailers will benefit equally from a rising market.
