Convenience Retailing in the United Kingdom
More consumers are choosing to shop at convenience stores rather than supermarkets in the United Kingdom, states Tahiyya Jurdine, Research Analyst at Euromonitor International. Two reasons for this trend include:
- The UK is seeing a demographic shift towards smaller households, and single families prefer to shop more frequently and buy less items when they shop.
- Consumers are spending less during economic hardships, and convenience stores offer only the essentials, limiting wastage of goods
