Inspiring the convenience community

2020 was an extraordinary year for UK convenience retail, growing +6.3% to £43.1bn, as restrictions on movement force shoppers to remain local. This resulted in a swathe of new shoppers into stores, giving retailers the opportunity to showcase their credentials.

With restrictions easing and hospitality reopening, we are likely to see a rebalancing with market growth slowing to +0.3% in 2021. So, what can retailers do to retain shoppers when the market opens up?

The Convenience Conference held on Tuesday 14 September got beneath these figures to give you exclusive data and insight on the market and consumer trends shaping the coming 12 months and beyond.
