This article presents information related to convenience store shopping behavior. More than one-third of adult and about three-quarters of teen store shoppers made a candy or gum purchase at a c-store in the past 30 days, according to the latest CSNews Shopper Panel. Consumer behavior patterns appear to have held steady over the past year— no small achievement for a category hit by strong competition from supermarkets, mass merchandisers and drugstores in the past several years. In fact, the current study shows that c-store shoppers who purchase candy/gum at c-stores are much less likely to have made a similar purchase at a drugstore.
