Convenience Cubed Plus + — Now more than ever convenience stores are reaping the benefits of being convenient – three times as much. Convenience store retailers intrinsically 1) fulfill a consumer need 2) have a longstanding hold in the retail sector, and above all, 3) are consistently profitable. And the plus side is…it gets better for retailers who optimize their store performance. The convenience store landscape is changing. With the demand for a robust array of stock items, beyond the proverbial fuel, cigarettes and gum, inventory efficiency is the ongoing challenge in the marketplace. Safety is also a competing concern in the convenience retail space and fundamentally will impact customer loyalty. For convenience store retailers, taking the right measures to maintain inventory and security are the only steps to ensure added value year after year.
