This article predicts the number of convenience stores in the U.S. The forecast expects store count to remain virtually flat through 2005, with growth of less than 1 percent. That's a rise of approximately 1,000 stores for an average of 137,027 convenience stores this year. While little growth is expected, many of those stores are in the hands of new operators as oil companies de-emphasize castors and sell off sites. The increase in the number of single stores operated by" new Americans" is a significant trend that needs to be watched, according to the Forecast Council. As Convenient Food Mart's Call noted, most customers don't care what flag is flying over the store.
