Convenience Stores - UK - April 2018
“Growth in the convenience sector accelerated for the third consecutive year, in part driven by inflation. However, it was the structural changes, both through acquisitions and failures, which made it a defining year for the sector. The increased power of the multiples in the market is likely to be both beneficial to those who find themselves now supplied by some of the biggest names in the grocery sector, but equally challenging to those outside of these new organisations.”
