A new breed of micro-grocers and urban neighborhood markets are cropping up to put an updated spin on the convenience store. From corner stores serving up fresh produce and gourmet grab- and-go meals to large mainstream retailers launching smaller outlets with better accessibility, the convenience store is being reimagined and transformed to cater to ever-changing consumer preferences.
