As per the research report, in-store sales opposed the overall trend in the US retail sales in 2008.

After analyzing the industry deeply, we expect that convenience stores sales will grow at a CAGR of around 5% during our forecast period (2009-2013), mainly on account of strong demand for motor fuel in the country as well as increasing in-store sales.
