LOS ANGELES, Jan. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- When 2014 came to a close, nationwide gas prices averaged below $2.25 a gallon, its lowest price point since the middle of 2009. With gas prices so low, the American commuter is the big winner, saving real dollars at the pump each week. But, because low prices make drivers a little bit more liberal on the gas pedal, they're making more trips to their local gas station. And, when these customers pop into the attached convenience store, c-store owners win too. This is where convenience store owners really make their money, explains local store wholesaler LA Top Distributor.
According to a spokesman for the National Association of Convenience Stores, store owners typically only profit 2 or 3 cents per gallon on each gallon of gas sold, making in-store purchases like beverages and cigarettes essential for keeping business going. While some rural gas stations without much competition can get away with profiting more off of gas purchases, Los Angeles based convenience store owners know that there is far too much competition to get away with higher gas prices. While it is the gas that brings people to convenience stores, it is the convenience items that keep the doors open. This makes it absolutely essential that convenience store owners partner with reliable, low-cost wholesale cigarette distributors to make sure that their shelves are always stocked, so a purchase never slips away. Not having a first time customer's preferred brand of cigarettes or cigars can mean the difference between a one-time purchase, and a lasting customer relationship that has the customer coming back to the same convenience store every day.
LA Top Distributor, one of the area's leading convenience store wholesalers, differentiates itself from other cigarette distributors by offering a wide variety of sought-after convenience store goods including energy drinks, lighters, batteries, air fresheners, and an assortment of other items. Just like the store owners, LA Top Distributor understands that every customer who walks into a convenience store is different, and that owners need to have goods ready to serve a wide variety of needs. Plus, the more variety a convenience store owner's distributor provides, the fewer distributors that owner has to juggle. While many business relationships between LA Top Distributor and individual store owners begin simply out of a desire for wholesale cigarettes, the relationship develops into much more once the owner becomes aware of LA Top Distributor's carefully curated line of products.
With low gas prices sending more and more customers into convenience stores, owners now especially don't ever want any portion of their shelves to go empty. If you own a convenience store and are dissatisfied with your current distributor, or would simply like to benefit from the great prices that LA Top Distributor offers on wholesale cigarettes and more, call 213-624-7224, or visit them online at http://www.c-store-wholesale.com/ for more information.
