Convenience Gourmet

Consumers embrace hip convenience stores offering fresh produce

Implications - In order to meet the needs of time-strapped consumers, many retailers are amping up their convenience store presence with modern in-store merchandising that highlights the upleveled food and beverage offerings. Often selling a mixture of ready-made meals and fresh produce -- creating the opportunity for retailers to diversify in-house brand offerings -- in addition to regular offerings, the new convenience store model is design-focused and boasts minimalist branding that appeals to the discerning Millennial consumer. This shift is related to the consumer desire to patronize smaller shops rather than massive box stores, suggesting a preference for intimate consumer-brand relationships.
