This article reports that The Village Market convenience store at the San Jose State University in San Jose, California is generating more in monthly sales than dining services since debuting in a new campus building. Monthly sales at the convenience store for September 2005 ran $190,000 and transactions numbered around 36,000. The check average is $5.59. Students can pay with cash or cash equivalency and 64% use the latter. Michele Gendreau, director of dining services, expects sales to continue to climb because the campus village is not yet at capacity. Daily sales are currently running $7,500-$8,000 but she expects in a year it will be $10,000 to $11,000.
