The Art and Science of The Convenience Store with Sumit Kar and Eric Warner. Part 1 of 2
Get Your Fix by Vixxo
To many consumers, the convenience store represents just that: convenience shopping. But Sumit Kar, Sr. Director of Operations, Vixxo, and Eric Warner, Director of Construction, Vixxo, both know there’s a lot that goes into making the convenience store experience engaging for the customer. Kar and Warner stopped by Get Your Fix for the first in a two-part series on what makes the convenience store experience valuable.Kar noted three important variables convenience stores rely on to stay relevant and in business during a shifting landscape of consumer behavior and a pandemic that has impacted all facets of retail. “How do we control costs, stay competitive in the environment, and adapt to the customers' changing needs?” Kar said. “I think those are the things everyone in the convenience store industry is trying to solve.”In recent years convenience stores have found themselves, with increasing fashion: adapting more and more to the shifting needs of the consumer. “It’s gone from a traditional convenience store model, selling beverages, and basic commodities, to a more retail model,” Kar said. “The consumer today is much more demanding. They want healthier, organic, and more high-end products.”“The biggest shift I’ve seen over the past five-to-ten years is probably the size of the facilities,” Warner said. “They’ve increased from the standard twelve hundred, fifteen hundred square foot boxes up to five, six, and seven thousand square foot.” Stores are maximizing the lot space to include more gas pumps on the outside and an elegant, inviting décor on the inside. Increased offerings and capabilities inside and outside of the store are all drivers to increase foot traffic.Be sure to subscribe to our industry publication for the latest news, videos, and podcasts in the Food and Beverage Industry.
The Art and Science of The Convenience Store with Sumit Kar and Eric Warner. Part 2 of 2.
Get Your Fix by Vixxo
In the second part of their conversation on the convenience store industry, Sumit Kar, Sr. Director of Operations, Vixxo, and Eric Warner, Director of Construction, Vixxo, focused on some of the science involved in addressing layout and aesthetic challenges of today’s ever-evolving stores. Warner noted the changes in the past ten years in terms of internal store design. “In the old days, there was some paint on the wall and some FRP up to help protect the wall,” Warner said. “Today, you see ceramic tile on the floors. Instead of VCT, you see ceramic or porcelain tile on the walls. Now, when you walk into a convenience store, you’re not left to your own devices; you walk in, look up, and see exactly where you need to go.” “The entire convenience industry is transitioning from the art to the science of it,” Kar said. “The physical layout is scientifically planned. The design stimulates buying and increases sales on products with higher margins. What is important to customers is how does their experience feel? Are they comfortable, do they feel safe, is the environment clean, and is everything operational? With COVID-19 impacting every facet of the business world, how has the convenience industry dealt with the changes? “Convenience stores have been aggressive in instituting safety protocols,” Kar said. “The convenience business has responded proactively and effectively in an adverse situation to support the customer base.” And to satisfy some of the new customer needs during the pandemic, many convenience stores have adopted online ordering and delivery practices, much like larger grocery stores.
