Business in focus – Convenience store

Key points


Location is certainly the most important aspect of opening a business. You need to set it up in a high-traffic area where the business will be visible, such as a city center.


A local grocery store or mini-market can’t offer the same attractive prices as a supermarket. To keep costs as low as possible, a good layout can be a solution. For a delicatessen or a business selling products sought after for their quality, the way in which the premises are laid out is important.

Your personality and network

Your personality will certainly have a direct influence on the success of your business. Easy customer contact, commercial acumen and a good network of contacts will help you build up a regular clientele.
