JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Starting this month, Convenience Store News has added more than 20,000 additional readers to its circulation. The new readers consist mostly of smaller operators who formerly read our Convenience Store News for the Single Store Owner spinoff.
After serving the unique information needs of owners of single convenience stores for the past 11 years, Convenience Store News for the Single Store Owner has ceased publication as a standalone, freestanding magazine. The December 2016 issue was the last installment.
“We’re incredibly proud that for more than a decade, Single Store Owner magazine provided the convenience store industry’s single-store owners with access to industry trends, best practices, research, and information on distributors and new products. It’s time to not only continue providing unique small retailer-focused content, but also provide these operators with a broader perspective on the overall c-store industry, allowing them to take advantage of insights and practices followed by the bigger chains,” said Convenience Store News Editorial Director Don Longo.
Published monthly, Convenience Store News magazine will now provide expert coverage and analysis for ALL convenience industry participants — global convenience retail chains, major petroleum brands, franchisers, franchisees, wholesalers and distributors, medium- and small-sized chains, and independent single stores. For more than 40 years, Convenience Store News magazine has been the No. 1 source of news, competitive intelligence and professional networking for the key decision-makers in the convenience and fuel retailing industry.
Because we still recognize that the issues facing small operators and single-store owners are unique, we will devote dedicated content in every issue of Convenience Store News to targeted information that helps these small operators be more successful.
In addition to providing the industry with the most comprehensive content through our print magazine and robust, mobile-friendly website (www.csnews.com), Convenience Store News will also be launching several new digital newsletters with content targeted toward specific critical areas of the business, including a new weekly newsletter aimed at small operators. In addition, all of our existing newsletters are being refreshed with a new, smartphone-friendly design and increased frequency.
