Once again, to provide the most complete picture of the convenience store industry, the 2004 Convenience Store News Industry Report features data from a variety of sources. Store census data was provided by TDLinx, which maintains a national count of both chain and single-store retail locations. A stratified random sample of retailers was chosen, based on number of stores operated, geographic region, sales volume and presence of retail motor fuel. Sales and unit volume data were provided by ACNielsen Corp. for a variety of categories from its Convenience track retail measurement service, which reports trends by national total, region and across local syndicated markets.
