Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Toya Mitchell, a leading analyst in the Multicultural sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Convenience stores’ value among Black consumers is rooted primarily in the amount of time they are able to save in traveling to and from the store as well as the shopping experience itself. Black men are the main c-store shoppers and they use these outlets as one-stop shopping locations, mostly at gas stations and chain stores, where they buy a range of items that satisfy immediate needs from snacks and beverages to prepared meals and nonfood items not as readily available at other nearby stores.
