Covid, Change, and Convenience

In March of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic shut down large swaths of the U.S. Economy. Consumer behavior and buying habits changed almost overnight as did the way firms operate their businesses. In this presentation we look at how convenience store operators responded to the pandemic and examine their resulting performance. We explore which of the many changes that occurred during Covid are likely to be permanent and how that will impact the way convenience stores do business in the future.
