The article presents information on the packaged beverages that are sold in the convenience stores. While soft drinks are still the most heavily consumed beverage in the United States, they are losing ground as consumers seek out greater variety in their beverages and strive for healthier lifestyles. As a result, traditional carbonated soft drinks are losing slots in the cooler as convenience store retailers reallocate the space to make room for more non-carbonated beverages. According to the convenience Store News Industry Report, packaged beverages, beer and fluid milk together account for about 25.7% of total inside sales, making the cold vault the second most significant area of the convenience store.
