By Linda Lisanti, Convenience Store News - 06/12/2017

NATIONAL REPORT — The large number of operating companies in the convenience store industry is proof of a retail channel that has vitality, energy, robust competition, and a high degree of entrepreneurship.

Inside the July issue, readers will find the 2017 Convenience Store News Top 100, the industry’s longest-running accounting of the largest convenience store chains by store count. The annual report is compiled in partnership with TDLinx, a service of Nielsen. For the report, a convenience store is defined as a small-format store of at least 800 square feet; with 500 to 1,500 SKUs; that operates at least 13 hours a day; and carries a limited selection of grocery items, including at least two of the following: toilet paper, soap, disposable diapers, pet food, breakfast cereal, tuna fish, toothpaste, ketchup and canned goods.

Is the Top 100 just not enough for you? Want to know the Top 200 convenience store chains? New this year, we bring you “The Next 100,” this CSNews.com ranking of the top 101-200 c-store chains.
