Consumers regard for convenience and accessibility is ever increasing. When consumers can shop online and have their basket delivered to their door in a matter of hours, it will take the assurance of quick, easy experience to attract them to make the trip to an actual location.
Consumers no longer want to waste time aimlessly browsing up and down endless aisles of enormous stores anymore. They want simplicity and efficiency in the form of smaller stores with specialized selections.
Not to mention the underlying benefits of smaller stores like reduced costs, and taking up less space allowing retailers to capitalize on potentially bigger population areas.
