Definition: Convenience store

Distributive trade

A convenience store is a shop with a small or medium-sized floor space relying largely on customers from the immediate neighbourhood who generally come on foot. Such stores provide a range of products for fast or impromptu purchases of everyday consumer goods, mainly food products, and are usually open long hours in countries with favourable legislation.
