Growth in the convenience sector outpaced the food & grocery market in 2011, and is set to continue in 2012. However, ongoing consolidation in the sector means that not everyone will benefit from the increased footfall and spend.

Continuing inflation in food & grocery has less impact in the convenience sector as shoppers tend to be less price sensitive in top-up shopping with an expectation that prices will be higher than in larger out-of-town supermarkets.

The market dynamics are changing as grocer expansion continues, along with new entrants bringing innovation. Symbol groups are upping their game to not only compete with grocers but to attract and retain members.
