The article focuses on convenience stores (c-stores) at college campuses in the U.S. College c-stores face some unique challenges. They mainly employ students, who may view their jobs as just one among many commitments, from academics to sports to extracurricular activities. They face competition from numerous other eating locations on campus, from dining halls to vending machines, not to mention off-campus c-stores and the pizza places and sandwich shops that sprout up around most universities. College c-stores improve sales by constantly refreshing planograms, responding quickly to student feedback, staying on top of trends and hosting frequent promotions.
