Summer Means High Sales for C-stores!

A spike in the temperature means a spike in sales for C-Stores. The summer months are the busiest times of year as the days become longer, and more people hit the road for travel.

Beverage sales spike more than 5% in the summer and domestic beer sold 40% of their annual dollars throughout the summer. The outlook for this summer appears to be no different. According to NACS, “On-the-go beverage sales also are expected to heat up at convenience stores this quarter. Fully half of all retailers (50%) say they expect energy drink sales to increase and 38% expect an increase in bottled water sales.”

With the increase in store traffic, staff has less time attending to fronting and stocking the cold vault which becomes more and more disorganized.

With FlexRoller, C-Stores can take every advantage of the uptick in summer traffic!

  • FlexRoller ensures that product of all shapes and sizes are always consistently fronted
  • This results in increased sales due to enhanced product presentation
  • Also decreases labor costs due to the elimination of manual fronting
