business news in context, analysis with attitude

PlanetRetail.net reports that Canada’s Sobeys has opened its first Sobeys Express c-stores.

The units include fresh produce, in-store bakery, rotisserie chicken, pizza counter, deli and frozen ready meals. The two stores are on a year-long trial, but the company has already stated that it hopes to open as many as 60 of the units.
KC's View:
You have to begin to wonder if supermarkets not having a c-store component will eventually become the exception as opposed to the rule.
