In recent times, the convenience stores at the gas stations have led to an important development in market share, profitability, and share of wallet in stores where the strategic planning has been implemented. With increasing petrol and diesel prices and corroding fuel limits, the gas stations have come to understand that convenience stores have the prospective to offer greater productivity by fascinating refilling traffic to their premises. Petroleum Wholesale is a unique marketing concept that combines casual dining, shopping, and refilling etc. under one roof. The employees at the company say that there are many factors which drive their trade and cause consumers to shop at their store instead of somewhere else. Some of the factors that are responsible for success include:
- Location: This is of course the crucial success factor and for the clients the location must be near to where they stay, the work place, or the usual route to and from home or work. Thus, the right location provides both suitability and worth.
- Availability: Presence of high quality branded products attracts maximum number of customers. For instance, clients are very much loyal to the cigar brands that prefer to shop for that only.
- Speed: This store offers fast, well-organized and friendly service as the customers are always in a rush.
- Price: Customers are ready to spend a bit more in order to get the most convenient, high quality and time saving products and services that they want.
