Starting a Convenience Store Business

This article briefly discusses the convenience store business. Find out some of the things you need to know in order to start your own convenience store business.

Convenience stores have become an essential part of our everyday lives.

convenience store business

As the name implies, the aim of this type of store retailing business is to offer convenience to its customers. This aim can be exhibited in a number of ways, the most notable being the accessibility of the store’s location. Convenience stores are usually situated handily close to where the market is. Why then would a customer go to all the trouble of going to the mall or supermarket when there’s a store down the block or around the corner he can run to?

Add to this, unlike the regular shopping venues, most convenience stores operate twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Why then would a customer wait for the shopping mall to open in the following morning to get what he or she needs when there’s an open store he can go to right now?

The convenience they get keeps the customers devoted. This is why they keep coming back again and again. This is also the reason the convenience store concept has managed to thrive despite the presence of retail giants all around.

If you are thinking of starting your own convenience store then read on. Below are some pointers that may prove useful to you.

Franchising: You need to decide whether you prefer to put up your own store from scratch or if you would rather buy an existing franchise. With a franchise, you get to benefit from the franchisee’s trademark and patronage. The franchise package also comes with a ready-made system of management and operation. This system will save you from a lot of headaches. The only setback is franchise fees and royalties are quite steep.

On the other hand, you get to learn more if you if you start your own store from scratch. Most say that the pay-off this is much sweeter because they know they did it on their own. Moreover, starting from scratch is less restrictive. It gives you room to improve upon what is currently being offered to the customers.

Inventory: A convenience store’s stock is made up of a wide range of goods all of which are everyday necessities for the average Joe (or Jane) i.e. items like milk, beer, condiments, baby diapers, and so on.

Remember to include products that you anticipate your customers might need at the last minute i.e. ice, beverages, batteries, camera film, snack food etc.

In allocating your inventory display, make sure you show all the goods you carry to the customers. Here’s a tip, place you’re fast moving items towards the back of the store. This way your customers will be made to walk the length of your store space.

Location: Give considerable thought in choosing a location. As explained above, the keyword in choosing an area is convenience. Examine the vicinity closely. Pay particular attention to the foot traffic, competition, accessibility, general appearance, and growth prospect of the area. The ideal store location brings visibility and affordability together. Given the nature of your store, you need to be where the customers are.

Manpower: When it comes to staffing your business, try not to hire more than what you need. Consider the size of your store. Consider the number of hours your store operates. Try to identify the busiest hours. This is when you need to put in additional manpower. Otherwise, stick to the minimum.

    Hello, I'm planning to start a convenience store in Miami in the lobby of an apartment building. I'm curious as to where would be the adequate place to buy my inventory from and what options are available, as credit lines, etc. Also, how difficult or easy is it to get financing to begin for the lease, stocking, and development of the store, and around how much would be these initial costs for a 1600 sq ft.

I have talked to many people about Convenience stores some people say that the sale is 10,000 dollars a week that means that, that will be your monthly net profit.

  • simon said on August 21, 2010
    hi, i'm looking to start my convenience store, ur article is great, thank u, but all these things are already circulating in my head . what i need is numbers talk, its ok to give estimates. but i need estimate figures or % of how much a convenience store make as net profits of the gross sales per month and how much net profit a year is made as % of the total investment money???? all i need are estimates, averages or %. i'm in vaughan, on. canada thank u very much, simon
  • Dennis said on August 25, 2010
    Simon, Please see my comment under starting a grocery store. The gross margin as a percent of total sales is between 23-35%. The net margin as a percentage of total sales will be between 1.2 and 5.6% but as an average it will be about 2.75%. The thing is the convenience store industry is headed down hill. People are much more aware of the difference between what they could be paying at a grocery store and what they are paying for the convenience. More and more large operators have begun giving up some of their margin and that would force any new players in the field to do so as well. As for a roi that would depend entirely on how many square feet you are operating. You should make roughly $10-$25 per week per square foot, with an average of about $20. So a 1000 square foot convenience store would make about $20,000 a week. Labor is going to be about 9 full time staff. You'll net about $552 per week. Your roi would also depend on how much it cost you to start up the store. For a store this size you would probably be looking at somewhere between $25,000 and $90,000 depending on the space you want, the product mix you choose, the fixtures, the marketing etc. So your return on investment for this convenience store will be 114% per annum to 32% per annum. I teach entrepreneurship by the way. One of the questions I try to ask every student is: "Why this business". What other businesses have you considered?

    My email is dennis@wildmaninstitute.org. My website is www.wildmaninstitute.org. No I am not selling anything. If you email I will do what I can to help.

  • mika said on September 5, 2010
    hi, my store is in Athens(Greece). I am a new owner though the store is old. Is placed to a pedestrian street that cars can cross, very close to the central market of the town. Although the potential customers dont see the store because its not a corner shop and take the other ways. how can i attract more customers in order to prefer to continue their walk and finally see the store and probably buy something? Also any tips of merchandising would be very helpful and how can i differentiate from the other similar stores near mine because competition is very big and economic crisis here makes things even worse. Also how can advertise the hours that the store is open? its 8.00 to 23.00 every day and sunday and this is a positive difference from the other stores. Unfortunately sundays sales are very low, though supermarkets are closed and most similar small stores near mine also closed. Any other tips concerned business and economic administration would be very important to me. Thank you.

  • Melissa Miller said on December 14, 2011
    Hello. I have 20 yrs retail management experience and we have a well known established convenience store in our small town. The only one close by is very high priced and 2 miles away, most people prefer to actually drive 13 miles round trip to next closest store simply due to service alone. I would plan on running and managing this with the help of my 2 grown daughters so payroll would be very low and more could go into the sore. I am wondering about investors or ideas on ways to start with low investment. I know this store can be a huge success, in the past former owners have always hired out and going bankrupt paying too much in payroll. It also has a huge 3 bedroom apartment upstairs for rental which can rent for as much as $700.00 a month. I would appreciate any assistance.

    First question to ask before you buy a place is how is the criminal history of the place (robberies) , second you have to watch that place for a good week or two , come in different times to see whats the busy hours , then after setting up the loan or either way you paying for the store ( invtory comes with the store , whatever he has in the store you buying it , you guys call the guy that do the inventory and you paying for the goods for the regular price and you can make payment on that ) ... a couple days of opening with the owner and a couple of days of closing to see how things goes , after that if you like the numbers that the place make ... Good luck and congrats and please please hire some people that will give a good costumer service , we missed that nowadays :)

    I am glad to see some comments on here about the importance of customer service, because I've started providing a simple solution for it, after having so many bad experiences. Everybody seems to notice the problem. Mainly it is because people come to the U.S. from countries where smiling and happiness seem to be secrets. So I came up with a simple, beautiful solution this week and am waiting to see if some Indian owners of one store are going to try it out. They are so depressing to look at, except for one guy there. I do a lot of this kind of work, but I have not tried it on convenience stores. Such a simple solution, but I am told that the foreign owners just aren't interested in fixing the problem. That means they have a mountain of ignorance about marketing... and about business in general. They don't understand that happy customers spend MORE and that they do so happily!

    I am in escrow for an old drive thru dairy in los angeles, ca The seller wants to add 25% to his cost for the inventory. I am not even interested carrying most of his items. I believe I am practically doing him a favor by buying all the junk food and he thinks he is doing me a favor by having readily available stock. What is reasonable?

    Me and My soon to be husband are looking at opening a country general store in a small town, about 15 minutes away. We both have worked retail and grocery stores and think that we are experience that we can do the job and do it well. The building that we are looking at is 5,00 square feet and at one point in time it was a country store for 40 years. It has the old time feeling of a Family ran store. We would like to bring it back to its Glory Days. Any and All help and advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
