LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a survey recently conducted by Convenience Store News amongst current convenience store owners, confidence surrounding sales in the coming year is high. An impressive 86 percent of all store owners said that they expected their sales to increase in the coming year. More importantly, these predictions are not without backing. With current fuel prices so low, customers will have more money in their pocket to spend inside the store after they are finished at the pump. Yet, wholesaler LA Top Distributor reminds store owners that, to fully capitalize on this, stores need to be fully stocked with c store supplies to ensure that a sale never slips away.

According to Fortune, Americans saved 13 billion dollars in the closing months of 2014 because of cheaper gas, and a lot of that money was spent on other goods. Approximately $1.5 billion of that money was spent at food and beverage stores, and another $1 billion was spent on certain leisure products like cigarettes. By being properly stocked up on products like cigarettes and energy drinks, convenience store owners will be able to capitalize on the low gas prices by being the place where customers spend their extra money. LA Top Distributor has, in recent years, become one of the city's most reliable wholesale energy drinks suppliers to help store owners capitalize on the growing market for energy drinks. The United States energy drink market has grown five thousand percent from 1999 to 2014, and that number continues to grow every single day.

For nearly two decades, LA Top Distributor has also been one of the leading c store distributors when it comes to staple convenience store products like cigarettes and cigars. When many customers who don't usually come to a specific convenience store stop in for gas for the first time, the store owner stocking that customer's preferred brand of cigarettes can be the difference between a one-time visit and a frequent shopper. Retaining repeat customers is one of the key ways store owners can increase profits and secure a constant flow of revenue. But, for store owners to ensure that they always have the items their repeat customers want, they need a reliable distributor partner like LA Top Distributor.

For 2015 sales that exceed even the most optimistic projections, store owners cannot afford to let a single sale slip away because they are out of a particular product. LA Top Distributor is committed to providing c-store owners with the quality products they need, at the low prices that are necessary to run a profitable convenience store.
