A convenience store is a popular choice for a first business, as it allows an owner to sample a bit of everything involved in running a business - accounting, customer service and stock taking to name a few aspects. Convenience stores sell everything that the local community could need at short notice, covering everything from deodorant to milk and magazines to bread. Although not available in all convenience stores, some have expanded to provide postal services, PayZone machines or lottery tickets - all ways to help bolster profit.
Leeds can be a perfect place to open a convenience store due to its large population. When deciding on a location, you'll need to think about the type of customer you want to serve. If you're wanting to cater to students you'll likely need to open later, and will benefit from running a convenience store in an area of student accommodation like Headingley. Alternatively if you want to serve older customers, look to the north of the city where the population tends to be older.
