Convenience shops need a flexible supplier if they are to meet the needs of their customers effectively. The size of many shops makes it impossible to store a huge volume of goods, so regular deliveries are likely to be necessary to maintain stock levels. This can prove to be a risk if you don’t choose reliable suppliers who will deliver on time whenever you place an order. However, it can also be an advantage, with more space freed up and less risk of waste.
Perishable goods like bread, dairy products, meat, fruit and vegetables need to be restocked the most frequently. You’ll have to consider this when arranging deliveries to ensure you have fresh products to offer to your consumers at all times. You may even find you need to arrange multiple fresh produce deliveries every week and then a larger, less frequent order for goods that last longer and non-perishables.
One of the most frequent deliveries you will need to organise is bread. The shelf life of pre-wrapped loaves is generally three or four days. You need to be aware of consumer habits too and the fact that people are unlikely to buy a loaf if it only has a day or two before the best before date. This means regular deliveries of smaller amounts may be a better option for your business.
