Globally, consumers did not view convenience store promotions as a way to save money with 43% disagreeing that promotions offer opportunity to lower spending and 49% agreeing with promotions being on undesired products.
The demand for fresh products from Australian consumers was strongly reflected in the findings, which showed that 41% of shoppers felt convenience stores should focus more on fresh offerings over promotions.
