ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a 2005 CSNews Industry Forecast Study. According to the study convenience stores sold almost two-thirds of all the beer sold in the United States in 2004, even though only 70 percent of c-stores sell beer. A number of those beer shoppers apparently live in southeast Texas where Chris Peters, category manager for Speedy Stop Food Stores, reports that he's had a phenomenal four-year run of 9 to 10 percent annual growth in beer sales. One c-store chain that reflects the nationwide trend more closely is Lee-Moore Oil Company in Sanford, North Carolina, with 20 stores in central North Carolina under the On the Run and Tru-Buy brands.
