- Convenience retailers can expect the upturn to stick in months to come, with 27% of shoppers saying they’ll continue to use their local convenience store more on an ongoing basis.
- 77% of shoppers feel ‘very safe’ or ‘somewhat safe’ when shopping in convenience stores
The report also looks into whether shoppers have noticed price rise in convenience stores….and fewer promotions on offer. Ironically, many shoppers think c-stores are now offering MORE promotions, not less.
The next section will be shoppers’ use of c-stores’ home delivery and click-and-collect services and will be available on Monday 1st June. Again, this mini report will be available to download for free.
The research was conducted by KAM Media and involved interviewing 500+ UK consumers on a national representative basis.
