Intro. The topics we have been assigned to research are they key convenience store goods and services. The convenience store being studied is the College Food Mart across the street from Wingate University. The owner of College Food Mart is Mr. Joseph Woldegiorgis. He owns three other different convenient stores within the Charlotte area. He gets his supply of gas from the company Exxon. Our intent with College Food Mart is to do research on a variety of goods and services that they provide, and then look for ways to improve their business. Through certain recommendations we may be able to help the College Food Mart convenience store to greatly improve their profits.

As a group we came up with a few examples of how we could improve the College Food Mart. These examples include: make a variety of goods and services more available, more advertisement on computers and on the side of the store, make a walk way across the street to make it safer for consumers, add a small personal food chain that Mr. Woldegiorgis can provide himself, improve lighting, and better the arrangement within the store to make more space available.

The store struggles in this department, because they have a small variety of advertisement displayed inside and outside the store. For example, the wall facing Highway 74, only has three small advertisements for people passing by to see. One way College Food Mart could improve their advertisement could be to put videos at gas pumps. These videos could let the consumer see and hear advertisements on screen, while they are pumping gas (High-Octane Advertisement). One company that is putting these videos to use is Tulsa’s Mercury Media. Through tests done over the last year, Mercury Media has seen that the advertised items went up by 50% (High-Octane Advertisement). While customers are pumping gas, instead of staring randomly off, they could be watching/listening to these videos. These videos may catch their eye and draw them in to buy products (Postlewaite). College Food Mart may struggle with advertisement, but they also do have a few good
