A recent statistic on Ontario workplace safety came as a bit of a surprise. Leading a list of employee challenges were violence and harassment on the job, and retail sites led the group of industries affected by these bad behaviours. Labour delivered nearly 12,000 orders to businesses in Ontario that were found to be in contravention of Bill 132, the provincial Sexual Violence and Harassment Action Plan Act, that came into force in 2016. Harassment can come in many forms. Among them:

• Inappropriate staring • Isolating or making fun of a worker because of gender identity Ontario’s regulations offer ‘Best Practices’ guidelines that are relevant across the country. The ministry suggests business follow these rules to get onto the right side of regulation and develop meaningful in-house policies: • Write a statement demonstrating employer commitment to fighting on-the-job harassment. • The statement should note that the policy applies to all workers. • The policy must indicate sources of harassment may come from a wide range that includes customers, clients, employers, supervisors, workers and members of the public. • Workers must be encouraged to report incidents of harassment, and an appropriate person must be in place to receive these reports. • The policy must state that the employer will investigate and deal with all complaints or incidents of workplace harassment in a fair and timely manner and that information about a complaint or incident will not be disclosed except to the extent necessary to protect workers and to investigate the complaint. • The policy must also let workers know they will not be penalized for reporting an incident. • The policy should include subsidiary resources such as those offered by a union or the inhouse health and safety committee. Working against harassment and violence on the job is in everyone’s best interests. Where does your business stand? What's your policy?

The view from CIPMA Canada’s petroleum marketing sector is an industry that the majority of people need to live their lives. From getting to work, to taking kids to school, most people drive into their local retail outlet and fill up.

Jennifer Stewart, President & CEO CIPMA

OCTANE: What is the biggest misperception about Canada’s petroleum marketing sector? Stewart: I think a big misperception is that most retail sites are owned by refining companies, when in reality, the vast majority or nearly 80 per cent of sites, are owned by independent businesses. What amazes me, day-in and day-out about the sector, is the innovation of the entrepreneurs behind the scenes. Many of these business owners operate ‘big brands’ like Shell and ESSO, but are driven, self-made entrepreneurs with a hunger to succeed in a very competitive marketplace. OCTANE: What advancements have been made in the sector that you would want highlighted? Stewart: The sector continues to be more energy efficient and prioritizes reducing emissions. As an industry, we have reduced sulphur in gasoline, a major contributor to air pollution, by nearly 95 per cent.

November / December 2018

But behind the scenes, how does that sector function and what makes it tick? Octane Magazine sits down with Jennifer Stewart, the President and CEO of the Canadian Independent Petroleum Marketers Association, also known as CIPMA, to learn more.

CIPMA was also supportive of the Ontario government’s recent decision to go to E10, up from E5. This means that gasoline will have an average ethanol content of 10 per cent across the province. We feel that there are ways we can reduce our carbon footprint and make people feel good about their choices. In fact, we launched a program called ‘Smart Fuelling’ to demonstrate how consumers can reduce their carbon footprint (www.smartfuelling.ca) OCTANE: In light of ongoing government regulation, what do you see as the future of the sector? Stewart: I think we need to keep innovating, and this isn’t just on the retail side of things. It’s fascinating what is happening in the automotive sector, and the advancements that are being made with internal combustion engines. They are becoming increasingly more efficient, and there is a concerted effort within the automotive sector to keep pushing forward and advancing their design in an effort to even further reduce emissions.

OCTANE: How do you think the sector will be influenced by the introduction of electric vehicles? Stewart: I think we all will be influenced by electric vehicles, but I don’t think this revolution will happen as quickly as some may be predicting. I think people like driving their vehicles, but they want to feel better about their choices. We have many companies that currently offer EV charging stations, in addition to traditional gas stations. I think the future will be a mix of both offerings, and that gasoline isn’t going anywhere, as long as we push to continue down our path of sustainability. OCTANE: As an industry association, what are your key priorities? Stewart: Having a voice at the table is key for us. I think being active contributors to government conversations, regulations and just generally being present advocating for our sector is the underpinning of CIPMA.

Mobil makes a move Iconic US brand opens in Canada Text by Mario Toneguzzi

More than 200 former Loblaw gas stations have been rebranded this year to carry the Mobil name. Now, Canadian operator Imperial Oil that is almost 70% owned by Exxon Mobil is setting its sights on expanding the well-known name to other Canadian locations. Yan Côté, retail fuels manager for Imperial Oil, said the branding of all locations took place within a year and the transition went relatively smoothly with the first four beginning in August 2017. “They’re located where you would typically find large Loblaw locations that can accommodate a fuel site - where Loblaw historically found it attractive to put a fuel offer in,” explains Côté. “Loblaw had started putting them in in the 1980s.” In July 2017 Brookfield Business Partners bought Loblaw’s 213 Canadian retail gas stations for about $540 million. That deal included convenience store kiosks on Loblaw-owned grocery store property that were beside the gas pumps. Côté says the Mobil gas stations have the benefit of being located near Loblaw stores and will continue to allow customers to collect PC points through Loblaw's PC Plus loyalty program and by using PC Financial products. “To be clear, the sites are owned by Brookfield,” says Côté. “The initial value we’re bringing is the value of the Mobil brand. The Mobil brand is a brand that stands for innovation, product quality and technology leadership. It’s very visible in motor racing. And, there’s 10,000 Mobil branded stations globally. We think it’s complementary to the Esso

brand that we also market as Imperial Oil. We believe that it’s going to give us an opportunity to grow at Imperial.” The iconic Mobil brand is known throughout the world but this is the first time the fuel retail brand has entered the Canadian marketplace. The gas stations are located in every Canadian province except Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island. Côté added that there are more locations in Western Canada. The Mobil brand has existed in Canada for a number of years on the lubricant side of the business and has a strong presence in that area. "In the world of petroleum retailing, the Mobil brand is the blue-chip brand that has transcended borders around the globe for generations. The Mobil flag will bring credibility to the Loblaw/Superstore filling stations and will easily resonate with customers in a brutally competitive business,” says Michael Kehoe, an Alberta-based retail specialist with Fairfield Commercial Real Estate in Calgary. “The gorilla-sized, large-format retailers are seeking to differentiate their house-brand fuel facilities from their core business and the Mobil branding will fulfill that separation strategy.” Mobil’s corporate lineage spans decades and goes back well into the 1800s. Its innovations have been numerous. Indeed, Mobil introduced the first synthetic motor oil in 1974. It was the first to develop detergent gasolines in 1968. It became the first gas retailer in the US in 1986 to introduce pay at the pump. In 1997, it introduced Speedpass, the first mobile payment device. Côté said the Mobil gas stations sell the Synergy fuel, which is a fuel that has the company’s proprietary additive in it that helps improve fuel economy and performance.

“The (Mobil) brand will be made available to dealers. We have intentions of seeing the brand grow both on Loblaw property and off Loblaw property,” says Côté. “That’s part of the reason we introduced the brand. It enables Imperial to grow. And we see the Esso and the Mobil brands as being highly complementary. We would expect to see substantial growth both on and off Loblaw property over time.” Côté says the company is in the process of doing some research to help it evaluate how the Mobil brand is growing in Canada and how consumers feel about the Mobil brand in the retail fuel space. “We see growth opportunity. ... A lot of the Loblaw properties have the space for a fuel site. The Brookfield team is evaluating opportunities there and we’re also looking to grow the Loblaw brand off Loblaw property working through dealers as we would with the Esso brand,” he added. “What we hear from consumers is that the Mobil brand is a global brand. They associate Mobil with technology and we have been selling Mobil lubricants in Canada like Mobil 1 engine oils for quite some time. So this just helps us further that brand into the retail fuel space. ... Mobil is a well-known brand. ... It’s a big international brand for us. It’s got a long legacy in terms of motorsports, technology leadership and just overall in the petroleum product space. “In the minds of consumers some of the things we hear are it’s perceived as a global brand. It’s perceived as a brand that stands for technology leadership. And, for us to enter the market in this way it kind of bolsters that view of Imperial being innovative in the way it goes to market.” OCTANE

Ivan Barber shares his wash wisdom

The basics still apply! Text by Kelly Gray Photography by Roger Yip

Octane: Where did it all begin? Barber: I started in 1955 in a service station in Etobicoke. In 1957 we bought a semi-automatic wash system from Choldun in Boston. The system was 23 feet by 8 feet and was hung from the ceiling on ropes. The system soaped up and down. We hand-washed the cars with mitts before the machine came up and down again to rinse the car. We then turned on two high-powered fans to assist while we hand-dried each car.

Ivan Barber has seen a few things over his more than 60 years as a pioneer in North America’s car wash industry. Mr. Barber has been an inventor with numerous patents, a distributor of leading innovative wash systems, and a car wash operator with sites that are among the most successful in Canada. Today, at over 90, Mr. Barber still shows up regularly for work at one of his facilities in southern Ontario where his experience is assisting to keep these locations at the top of their game.

November / December 2018

Barber came to Toronto in 1951 from a farm near Mount Forest, Ont. He took a job as a constable with the Toronto police service, but a life of shift work wasn’t appealing, so he looked to other avenues and discovered a need for clean cars in the growing city. We recently got together with Mr. Barber at his VALET Carwash in Mississauga and asked him about the early days in Canada’s car wash sector.

In 1960-1961 we opened Evans Ave. Car Wash, our first fully automatic location, on the same site. When I went in to this part of the business there were just seven other automatic washes in Toronto. We were the eighth. The leader in Toronto (and Canada) at that time was Farbs at King and John St. where they did more than 1,700 cars a day, making them one of the biggest car washes in the world. Octane: What kind of skills were necessary to run these early operations? Barber: I came from the farm and so I brought lots of experience from CCentral.ca


that side. On the farm you have to do everything yourself. If something needs to be fixed you get out the tools and get it done. By 1963 I had earned my mechanic's licence, and this enabled me to really get involved in not just repair and maintenance but design and build as well as distribution of systems. Octane: Where were the innovators that moved you forward? Barber: In the ’60s after getting my mechanic's licence I looked at Rocket Wash in Chicago. Rocket used a three-brush unit with men doing the windows and the back of the car. I liked the system and purchased a unit for my wash. One challenge I had with this system was the top brush. It could come down and break off the car antennae. So, we had to retract the top brush and wash that area by hand. Octane: What were some of the partnerships you established to help drive car wash? Barber: In 1963 I introduced ChemTherm Car Wash Equipment to the market here.

In 1965 I brought California Car Wash Equipment to Canada and in 1989 we changed the name to Washworld. The California Car Wash Equipment line was popular and our sales were more than $9 million back in 1973 alone. Octane: We have been told you hold a number of patents. Tell us about some of your inventions. Barber: Back in the late 1960s Sherman brought out a wrap-around brush system. I looked at this and saw there could be improvements. A year or two later I introduced the Barber Wraparound, a product that rose to become one of the top three systems in the market. Octane: What are some of the important developments you have witnessed? Barber: In the 1960s California Carwash came out with hydraulics. This was an improvement because electric motors had been a challenge in the industry. Electrics and water just didn’t mix. In the early days we were all using bristles. Then Belanger developed soft-cloth

brushes. Everyone thought bristles were scratching cars so the industry was happy to convert to soft cloth. I disagree that it was the brush that was scratching the cars, but it was great for sales. In the 1970s the oil companies were looking for additional revenue and started building car washes on their sites. I started selling equipment to the oil companies and installed systems from coast to coast. Customers expect more today and we have the equipment to meet expectations. True, it costs more to wash cars now. I started washing cars charging $1.50 to clean the inside and outside of the vehicle. The same service today costs $29. A lot of the same thinking still applies to a good wash. No matter how much change there is in the industry you still need good quality water, detergent and friction to really get the job done right. There are a lot of bells and whistles out there, but in the end the basics still apply. OCTANE

um service in a wand wash setting that is hard to beat in Saskatoon,” adds Spiffy Car Wash Manager Ward Pangracs, pointing out that Spiffy’s program is premium self-service and not a discount offering. All sites feature Spiffy’s multi-stage self-service package (high pressure soap, foam brush, triple foam conditioner, rinse, spot-free rinse and polish), plus turbo dry and vacuum.

Saskatoon-based Wyant Group knows a thing or two about cars. Started by local businessman Vaughn Wyant back in the early `80s, the organization has grown to become an automotive sales and service leader with sites in Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC. Their dealerships, such as Jubilee Ford in Saskatoon, offer a Who’s Who of domestic and exotic brands from Alfa Romeo and Audi to Ford and Hyundai, and their partnership with Saskatoon Stock Car Racing Association at Wyant Group Raceway delivers performance car exhilaration and spectacle on a nightly basis. So, it’s no surprise to discover that the Wyant Group is also behind Spiffy Car Wash, a three-unit

“We don’t ‘cheap out’ on things like chemicals. Our customers can see the difference and can smell the different chemical cleaners that come with their own scents. We offer a Bug Off cycle, tire clean and a heated pre-soak to maximize the effectiveness of this setting. We use hog bristle brushes as well and our customers tell us the brushes really do the job. Wands are flexible rather than rigid to give an added advantage to customers looking to get into hard to reach places. These wands are also more durable.”

According to Bond, Spiffy got its start on 8th Street with a 10-bay wand wash and a touchless automatic wash. “We saw the success and value in this service and moved to establish sites closer to our customers in various locations around Saskatoon,” he says noting an annual throughput of around 350,000 cars with customers spending about 10 minutes per car.

According to Pangracs, cleanliness of the site is a key component to its market presence. “Who wants to bring their vehicle to a filthy car wash?” he says. “We cycle every bay every day with staff tasked to maintain appearance of the facility. Each bay is fully cleaned before the next customer. We use 18 ft. Conform wall systems that are easy to clean. Their height and the large windows also mean easy entry and access even for large vehicles, and the windows let in natural light, a feature often lacking in most car wash settings. Staff even clean the brushes before the next use. Site cleanliness is one of the most consistent comments we get from our customers,” he says, noting that the combination of state-of-the-art equipment and modern fresh appearance says volumes about the quality of service to customers.

“At Spiffy sites customers can clean their vehicles their way. We offer a premi-

proprietary and has become a popular location for dog owners in the city. Each of the dog wash bays provides tubs, treats, towels as well as shampoos and conditioners. “You only pay for the water. Our competitors don’t have this service and we are open early to late. This makes Spiffy another key point of contact with a large and growing customer group,” says Pangracs, mentioning that they work with the SPCA, dog rescue organizations and Adopt-a-Pet. The RV wash is available in three bays at the Melville St. location where customers can enjoy 210 feet of bay length and a 13.6-ft. clearance. “This is great for boats and RVs where equipment can be easily pulled through. We see lots of customers during spring rollout and fall put-away as well as after weekend excursions. There is currently nothing in the city to accommodate this group on this level of service,” he says. At Spiffy they don’t recirculate water but use reverse osmosis H2O in their systems. “Saskatoon has a unique soil composition that creates unique challenges. We intercept sediment in trenches and

pump out monthly with water effluent going to the city’s sewer system for treatment,” says Pangracs. Payment is easy at Spiffy with customers looking to use cash, the Spiffy Wash Card or the dedicated Spiffy App. Ward points out that cash is still king in Saskatchewan, but credit card and digital payments are growing. The Spiffy Wash card is reloadable and has been a blessing for the Wyant Group car dealers who use the service to offer a bit of value-added for body and repair shop customers who get a $10 wash loaded onto cards. “We take a bit of information about the customer at sign-up for the wash card. We use this to better understand who our customers are and to approach them with dedicated offerings. We have even used the card data to return lost items.” The dedicated app takes simplicity to a higher level with things like credit card and customer info installed for easy retrieval at entry point readers. The Spiffys' app, locally developed by Nova-Tek Innovations, is loaded onto customers smartphones and is capable of handling all transactions at sites and allows Spiffy to communicate offers to its customers.

“We started out as a service provided to just our dealership customers from a location at the AutoMall,” says Bond. “Now with three sites in Saskatoon we are closer to where people live. For example, our Melville St. location is adjacent to a community of 10,000 homes. Our goal is to provide these people (and others) with a state-of-the-art vehicle and doggie wash service as well as cross-merchandise our automotive product offerings.

SECOND QUARTER WASH VOLUME IMPROVES

RIMS AND ROVERS AUTO AND PET WASH Vice-President - Oil Companies Mike Dietrich PIONEER PETROLEUM

W

hen the second quarter of 2011 is compared to previous second quarters since the Wash Volume Report (WVR) started reporting data in 2004, it ranks either first or second depending on how you are counting. The average wash cycles per site were 6,459, compared to 5,982 for 2010, which was a 10.7 per cent gain yearto-year. The only other second quarter to have better results was in 2007, which saw average wash cycles at 6,668. The second quarter’s average cycles per site was down significantly from the previous quarter, which had been 8,801 cycles. This decline from the first quarter to the second is a normal occurrence as the first three months of the year remain the best wash volume months. Average revenue per site was the highest ever for a second quarter, at $49,644. The increase in revenue per site was up 6.4 per cent from the $46,666 average of the second quarter of 2010. The closest second quarter average revenue was the average revenue for 2009, which was $46,957. Average revenue per cycle, the measure of an average wash price, declined 1.5 per cent from the previous quarter in 2010, however, it was up 3.2 per cent from the first quarter of this year. Average revenue per cycle was $7.69 in the second quarter of 2011, $7.80 in the second quarter of 2010 and $7.45 in the first quarter of 2011. The average price has climbed continuously since the inception of the WVR. After starting out at a low of $5.95 in the first quarter of 2004, it saw a high of $8.42 in the last quarter of 2010. The trend is to have prices at their lowest in the first quarter, often dipping below the previous fourth quarter average, but then continuing to climb up to the fourth quarter.

Golf TournamenT a GreaT SucceSS he Canadian Carwash Association’s annual golf tournament in September was another great success drawing 94 golfers for 18 holes of golf at the Blue TSprings Golf Club in Acton in September. This networking event brings together carwash operators and the top suppliers in the industry for a day out of the office. The day wraps up with a dinner and a raffle prize table with proceeds from the draw donated to Canadian Spinal Research Organization (CSRO), the new charity of choice for CCA. An auction for Toronto Maple Leaf tickets raised additional funds this year.

The cannabis conundrum On October 17 cannabis became legal. As of that date Canadians (18 or 19 and older) were allowed to consume recreational marijuana with impunity.

is counting on larger margins from sales of cannabis-related merchandise such as bongs and pipes, and sees cannabis as an excellent traffic generator.

After the legislation received royal assent on June 21, provincial and territorial governments got to work putting in place their systems for the sale of cannabis, including private, licensed stores and government-run facilities.

Her new business is in a separate building from the regular c-store, so it's not the store within a store that some retailers favour.

Are you ready to jump on the cannabis bandwagon? So, where does that leave convenience retailers? Are you ready to jump on the cannabis bandwagon? And will consumers shopping at c-stores have an appetite for the newly legal product if it's on offer? Some stores are banking on a big yes. Tobin's Convenience is the first and only store in Labrador City – in fact, in all of Newfoundland and Labrador to date – to get a licence to sell cannabis. Operator Brenda Tobin is banking on the interest in cannabis to spark sales of ancillary products. As she told writer Donalee Moulton in this issue, profit for marijuana products is limited by the government to an eight per cent markup. “You have to sell $250,000 to make $20,000. There’s not big money in it,” she said. But she

What about the big convenience chains like Couche-Tard? The 10,000-strong North American heavyweight, which already does a thriving business in many locations in beer and wine, would seem a logical venue for cannabis. But it appears the company is taking a more cautious approach to recreational marijuana. Chairman and founder Alain Bouchard in a recent interview said staff are not completely sold on selling this new product, many out of fear of how customers may act in their stores. As the stewards of selling age-restricted products, like cigarettes, c-stores seem logical purveyors of pot...if they want to be. Time will tell.

THE BUZZ CROSS-CANADA ROUND-UP

People, places, news and events

Smoke-free legislation status quo Full Circle Alimentation Couche-Tard is rebranding 36 of its CST sites to Irving Oil Ltd.’s Circle K. As part of the deal, the multinational c-store operator is selling 13 CST retail sites to Irving, nine in Nova Scotia and the remainder throughout Atlantic Canada. Hundreds of Mac’s Convenience Stores throughout Western Canada will also be rebranded as Circle K by the end of this year. Alimentation Couche-Tard announced in 2015 that it would be retiring the Mac's brand.

No butts about it Halifax wants residents to butt out. The city has become one of the first in the country to implement a sweeping ban on smoking on municipal property, including sidewalks. According to city officials, the new regulation was prompted in large part by the legalization of cannabis. Smokers who ignore the prohibition will face fines ranging from $25 to $2,000.

Tougher new smoking legislation has been put on the back burner by Ontario’s new premier, Doug Ford. The Smoke-Free Ontario Act was scheduled to be updated this past summer to include new rules for the sale, display, and promotion of vaping products. As of now, however, the current rules remain in force. All convenience stores in Ontario can display vape products, but they must ensure purchasers are at least 19 years old.

Plainly speaking On the fifth anniversary of the introduction of plain packaging of tobacco products in Australia, Canadian retailers are raising alarm over the policy’s negative impact on small business retailers in that country, prompting the Canadian Convenience Stores Association to call on the federal government to put the brakes on bringing similar rules to Canada. "Down Under they assumed that plain packaging of tobacco products would discourage smoking,” says CCSA President Satinder Chera. “Instead, the overwhelming evidence out of Australia shows the opposite, including a big uptick in the illegal tobacco market."

C-stores to sell cannabis C-stores are stepping up to sell cannabis. In jurisdictions allowing for the private sale of cannabis, successful retailers often include convenience stores. Of the 24 retailers selected to qualify for cannabis sales in Newfoundland and Labrador, one is a convenience store in Labrador City. In Calgary, a Co-op gas-bar has been given the green light.

Ontario retailers can sell cannabis Ontario’s online retail channel for cannabis will be getting some company. The government has announced that a private retail model will be in place by April 1, 2019. "The government of Ontario will not be in the business of running physical cannabis stores," says Minister of Finance Vic Fedeli. "Instead, we will work with private sector businesses to build a safe, reliable retail system that will divert sales away from the illegal market." Along with the new sales opportunity comes a zero-tolerance policy, including severely escalating fines, for any retailer who operates in the illicit markets.

Charging ahead Canada’s convenience store retailers are applauding federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s announcement that the government has helped secure new, separate and voluntary commitments from three credit card companies that will lead to lower costs for small- and medium-sized businesses. Visa and Mastercard have promised to reduce domestic consumer interchange fees to an annual average effective rate of 1.40 per cent for a period of five years; narrow the range of interchange rates charged to businesses; and require annual verification by an independent third party. The reduction in interchange fees is expected to save businesses in Canada $250 million per year, based on credit card sales of roughly $250 billion per year.

Contraband campaign The Ontario Convenience Stores Association has joined forces with Crime Stoppers to fight contraband tobacco. The dynamic new duo hopes that by spreading awareness, opportunities will be limited for organized crime to profit from the illegal tobacco market. According to OCSA CEO Dave Bryans, contraband tobacco has reached epidemic proportions. Thirty-seven per cent of all tobacco is now illegal. In areas like northern Ontario, this number often exceeds 65 per cent.

Thank you to first responders Three gas bars in Lloydminster, AB, are showing their gratitude to first respond-

ers in a quintessentially Canadian way. The Cup of Caring program offers first responders, including police officers and paramedics, a free cuppa java and heartfelt thank you.

money matters

by Mike Jaczko and Max Beairsto

Watch those automatic

renewal contracts! Convenience retailers invariably enter into a variety of agreements as part of the normal course of business. Unfortunately, we see many owners who have not read their contracts before they sign them. This is always a bad idea because what you don’t know can hurt you! In some cases, you may hear an agreement referred to as “standard form,” implying that it contains no provisions which may be prejudicial to you. All agreements you sign create rights in your favour and obligations you must fulfill – that is equally true for “standard form” contracts. Convenience retail owners owe it to themselves to understand fully the benefits and rights as well as the costs and obligations associated with the contracts they sign. The term or duration of your contracts warrants attention. The term of your contract is usually quite clearly stated. However, many contracts contain renewal provisions. A renewal can be: (i) automatic, where the term is automatically extended unless one of the parties advises the other that the contract will terminate at the end of the current term, or (ii) optional, where one party has the ability, at his or her option, to trigger a renewal term by giving notice. Failure to understand how a renewal works for a particular contract can lead to unintended consequences. Automatic renewals are often seen in equipment lease and banner agreements. In today’s convenience retail business environment, you could lose the ability to negotiate a fresh agreement at the end of the term because the agreement has auto-

matically renewed. In the event that the agreement is automatically renewed for a further term, you may miss the opportunity to renegotiate a banner agreement, or even walk away. Some banner agreements permit you to terminate the banner agreement on relatively short notice, which can mitigate the impact of an automatic renewal. Optional renewals are most often seen in occupancy leases. Rent for the renewal term is sometimes specified or can be subject to negotiation (failing agreement, the rent is often determined by arbitration). If the tenant fails to properly trigger the renewal, the landlord is free

2019

2018

to set the rent without regard to any specified renewal rent or the threat of an arbitrator imposing rent. In such circumstances, the convenience retailer tenant may have little or reduced negotiating power to strike a fair deal, or, if the lease specifies a favourable rental rate for the renewal period, the tenant may miss that opportunity. In either case, recognition of the notice periods involved and taking

| November / December 2018

appropriate action within those notice periods are the key to ensuring that you position your c-store business to its best advantage. Owners should review their contracts to understand the renewal mechanisms, think about what the best course of action will be – taking into account their circumstances – and create a reminder system to afford ample warning of impending notification to ensure they are not hit by a failure to comply with the requirements of the contracts. Retaining knowledgeable legal counsel with experience in the convenience retail industry is a must! ◗

Creating a convenience

caffeine buzz Whether it's hot, cold, cold-brewed, espresso or Americano, coffee continues to create a buzz. There is much debate and conjecture about the origins of what we now know as coffee. The word "coffee" may come from the Arabic word Qahwah, meaning “that which stimulates and keeps high.”

had multiple unexpected desirous effects – increased mental acuity, physical stimulation, and appetite suppression. No surprise that coffee was quickly embraced as the perfect breakfast beverage.

On a per capita consumption basis, Canada ranks in the top 10 worldwide (Exhibit 3). And, most often, the channel of choice for the more than $6B coffee market is Away-From-Home (Exhibit 1).

23%

Coffee’s commercial launch occured in Yemen in the 14th century. The first scaled exports of coffee can be traced to the Port of Mocha, in Yemen.

The opportunity is great. But so is the competition. Maclean’s Coffee Ranker is a tool drawing on the coffee chain preferences of more than 1,500 Canadians. As of the end of 2017, the results showed that several players had already supplanted Tim Hortons as Canada’s café of choice. One convenience chain – T Eleven – appears in the top 15, showing that c-stores can fight and win in this space.

Grocery / Retail

77%

In the 17th century, coffee had its Google moment. The Dutch East Indian Company took steps to cultivate coffee in the colonies. The other European powers followed suit, as coffee plantations appeared in the West Indies, South America, and around the globe.

Food Service

Increased supply led to lower prices for consumers, and the democratization of coffee – it became a beverage for all people.

Upon discovery, coffee was received as a miraculous concoction. Its first consumers found that an infusion extracted from seeds or fruits of the coffee plant

Canadians reach for coffee more often than any other beverage. Coffee is the number one beverage in Canada, and not by a small margin. According to the Coffee Association of Canada, over 70% of adults over the age of 18 have coffee as their beverage of choice (Exhibit 2).

Where the market is going The Silver Chef: Canada’s State of the Coffee Industry 2017 extols the view that the future of the coffee market is in premiumization of the product and the overall coffee experience. This trend is, largely, being driven by younger consumers whose values and tastes (Exhibit 5) are reflected in their purchase decisions. Canada’s Food Price Report 2018, prepared by Dalhousie University and University of Guelph, notes that competition for consumers’ food and beverage dollars is heating up. As the food market consolidates, and as channel disrupters

continue to shake up the space, you’ll be hearing more about the “grocerant,” a word combining “grocery” and “restaurant.” Grocerants generated 2.4 billion new visits and over $10 billion U.S. in sales in 2016 – game-changing numbers. In Canada, the numbers will be driven by the same fundamental consumer demand for portability and convenience – increasingly offering consumers hybrid QSR and retail options under one roof, for everything from ready-made meals to gourmet coffee. Between traditional coffee players raising their game, and these new competitors poaching visits and purchase dollars, what has the impact been on coffee purchases in the convenience channel? The data tell a powerful story: • Market research provider, Euromonitor International, indicates that total coffee volume sales in Canada in Convenience & Gas (C&G) between 2012-2017 fell -18%. • According to Ipsos FIVE/FSM (Foodservice Monitor), a comprehensive ongoing food and beverage syndicated tracking program, C&G Coffee Occasions are flat in year-over-year tracking while Dollars have increased (+19%).

• Ipsos Foodservice Monitor reports that consumption rates of Specialty Coffee are increasing for both At-Home and Away-from-Home options.

Top tips to up your java savvy How can you deliver a jolt to your coffee program and help make your c-store the coffee stop of choice for busy shoppers? • Invest in a good coffee program. Even in you don't co-brand with a popular chain, you can replicate the coffee experience with equipment and variety. • Accessorize. Make sure you upsell other categories, like fresh pastries, to complete the experience. • Sweat the small stuff. Your customers expect a clean, appetizing environment whenever and wherever food is involved. ◗ ◗ Darren Climans is a foodservice insights professional with close to 20 years' experience partnering with broadline distributors, CPG suppliers, and foodservice operators.

How to play the

numbers game Two chronic afflictions can kill your c-store business – too much inventory and high overhead. If they get out of control, either one can ruin your business. With today's affordable computerized business systems, there's no excuse for losing control. However, simply implementing the systems is not enough. You must take the time to do the maintenance, study the numbers, then put words to the numbers and take decisive action.

Inventory – your main source of revenue One of the most important aspects of every item-based retail business is the inventory. It’s your main source of revenue, so it’s crucial to make smart decisions about how much inventory you have, how much you should store, and how much to reorder. As much of a problem as too much inventory is too little. Not having enough inventory causes image issues as well as lost sales. Both have a profound effect on the consumer experience. One way to ensure you always have a good balance is using software specifically designed to manage item-based businesses. For the software to generate the right amount of replenishment inventory, you must do systematic maintenance of your computerized inventory management system. Conduct regular SKU cycle counts to keep your POS inventory management system up to date with the correct onhand inventory and make adjustments to minimum or maximum inventory levels, along with ensuring accurate lead times. If not maintained, your system can get out of whack very quickly and result in your replenishment system’s suggesting too much, too little, or no inventory at all. The value and quality of your product decrease the longer you keep it in stock. Your priority has to be to sell your inventory after it’s received.

Controllable versus uncontrollable expenses There are two main types of overhead expenses in your c-store – controllable and uncontrollable. Knowing how to effectively manage each is key to profitability. There are many tools you can employ to help control expenses, for example, a good store policy manual describing lighting and temperature settings for winter and summer. Even something as simple as replacing older light bulbs and ballasts with newer, more efficient models can help control expenses. Most systems provide exception reports that highlight variances to plan and compare year over year. Carrying excess inventory has significant costs. One of the highest for many companies is financing the purchase and holding of inventory. Also, the more inventory you hold, the more you have to spend on labour to manage it, space to hold it, and in some cases, insurance to protect against its loss or damage. Physically counting and monitoring the levels of inventory you hold also takes time and incurs costs.

Don't "cut" your way to profitability When a c-store gets into trouble financially, often the owners try to "cut" their way to profitability by reducing expenses or controlling costs to achieve a profit. The trouble with this is that the biggest expenses are usually not controllable (rent, salaries), therefore the expenses being cut (employee hours or benefits) directly impact the customer experience and

inventory system maintenance, creating a cycle of decline. Remember, it is not the P&L (profit & loss statement) at the end of the month that matters, it is the cash flow you have during the month.

Convenience retail is a cashflow management business You have to become an expert at managing cash flow. This is done by balancing your approach to expenses and inventory. First, make sure you aren’t tying up cash flow with unchecked, escalating controllable overhead expenses. Second, recognize that the more inventory you have on hand, the greater the amount of the business’s capital that’s tied up. You risk slowing down your cash flow if either isn’t managed. Very few of us love spending time on the “numbers,” but if we don’t understand our numbers…we don’t understand our business. Don’t let too much inventory or high overheads “kill” you. ◗ Gerry Spitzner helps retail companies and individuals develop winning marketplace strategies and build clients for life.

Is the year convenience stores get

Or just high on

Fact: retail is changing dramatically, requiring operators to be nimbler than they've ever been. Are convenience stores up to the challenge? What's the formula for success? Text by Will Ashworth 14

Does health = wealth? People all over are trying to live healthier lives, but that's not always easy when you’re on the go, 24/7. As we look to the year ahead, it’s easy to suggest that healthy alternatives will play a major role in the success of convenience stores coast to coast in 2019. Witness the dramatic rise of non-meat lifestyles. How can you tell the vegetarian and vegan lifestyle has gone mainstream? Here’s a good indicator: A&W’s Beyond Meat meat-free burger sold out by mid-August after just six weeks in the Canadian market. "The shortage of our Beyond Meat Burger was due to its immense popularity,” said A&W CEO Susan Senecal in a September email to the Vancouver Courier. “We are ecstatic that Canadians love the burger as much as we do and are thrilled it will be back for good.” The desire for healthier alternatives is being driven to a great extent by the burgeoning Millennials and the group just behind them, the Gen Zers.

What do Millennials and Gen Zers want? These two groups account for 64% of the world’s population. In Canada alone, says Statistics Canada, the Millennials represent 27.1% of the population, or 10.1 million people. You win them over and the world is your oyster. Easier said than done. Millennials are especially difficult to pin down because they have very high expectations. Ottawa-based Millennial expert, David Coletto, CEO of Abacus Data and himself a Millennial, is in the business of pinpointing what motivates younger consumers. “I’ve been saying to the convenience store audience for a while that tobacco, gas and even lottery-ticket demand is on the decline,” Coletto says. “Foot traffic is slowing. So many categories are reduced.” What Millennials want from convenience stores is a group of products that you can’t get elsewhere right away. Consumers ask themselves, “Why should I step in your store?”

Coletto believes successful convenience stores deliver a differentiated offering from other food and beverage retailers such as grocery stores, in that they are often open 24 hours, setting themselves apart by providing an on-demand, customized shopping experience.

Transforming business Across the retail landscape, whether you run a convenience store or some other type of retail operation, digital innovations such as mobile ordering are taking hold. Starbucks’ U.S. stores generate 13% of their transactions from mobile ordering, and its usage is accelerating; mobile ordering has become a key growth driver for the company. 2019 will be a year of trials and tribulation for convenience stores as they find their way in a grab-and-go, on-demand world. Technology is a big part of the innovation taking place, but ultimately it is the products and services available within those four walls that will drive sales higher.

1. Kombucha, coffee, and energy drinks Convenience store customers are looking for products that are both convenient and provide some functional benefit. Three that will continue to see growth in 2019 are ready-to-drink coffee, Kombucha, and sports and energy drinks. “In convenience stores there has been an expansion of shelf space devoted to RTD coffee recently,” said Matthew Barry, senior beverages analyst at Euromonitor International. “One big cause has been the popularity of cold brews and the other has been major investment from the big players who see a great deal of potential in this category.” November / December 2018

2. Healthy prepared meals

4. Automated convenience stores

Although people are pressed for time, convenience store customers will continue to seek out healthier alternatives to hot dogs and nachos.

Amazon Go will continue to open automated, cashierless convenience stores outside its home market of Seattle. The use of technology such as scanners, cameras, and a checkout app allows customers to get in and get out without waiting in line.

“As consumers have reported feeling more pressed for time in recent years, eating on-the-go has increased in popularity,” Bob Hoyler, Euromonitor research analyst, said in an email. “As a result, convenience stores that boost their assortment of hot and prepared food options would be wellplaced to capitalize on this trend.”

“The high cost of living in major cities combined with the high cost of rent has made it necessary for convenience store operators to reduce staff counts [to make the economics work],” said Retail Insider editor Craig Patterson. I’m not sure we’ll see automated convenience stores here in Canada in 2019, but it’s definitely a trend to follow in the year ahead.

3. Couche-Tard on the acquisition trail Alimentation Couche-Tard management has said it is building a management team in Asia to grow there. While U.S. acquisitions could happen in 2019, selling prices in that country are high. Here in Canada, look for the continued rebranding of stores as Circle Ks. "I'd say that based on public management commentary, they're currently hunting for assets in Asia," Robin Speziale, the author of the National Bestseller, Market Masters, said in an email. "However, what I'm mostly concerned about is management's vision to adapt to, and grow along with disruption, namely electric and self-driving vehicles. Transportation can impact consumer behaviour with traffic to their gas stations. Further, our increasingly 'on-demand' economy means more consumers buy online and have things delivered to them. We're seeing this with fast food (e.g. Uber Eats). And we might see this with small purchases too, like chocolate bars, and drinks soon.”

6. Cannabis retail Legalized cannabis is upon us creating a feeding frenzy in provinces like Ontario where the provincial government reversed its plan to sell marijuana in government-run stores and is instead moving to a private retail model. That could be good news for convenience-store operators like Alimentation Couche-Tard, which has a large number of Ontario locations to service its customers.

5. Next-generation vending machines Another trend picking up steam south of the border is nextgeneration vending machines. Two of the more exciting offerings: PharmaBox, an automated vending machine that holds 120 pharmacy over-the-counter pharmacy products, and Applestone Meat Co., a vending machine offering fresh cuts of meat. Open 24/7, customers craving a little homemade BBQ now have a middle-of-the-night option available to them. "We’re not in the 1950s anymore, where everyone works 9 to 5 and eats at the same time every night," Applestone founder Joshua Applestone recently told Bloomberg.

“We have the ability to sell this product while meeting all government requirements (and) we can train our staff on verifying the identity of all consumers, regardless of their age,” Couche-Tard founder and Executive Chairman Alain Bouchard said at the company’s 2017 annual meeting. The only problem for convenience stores in Ontario is whether the government will allow cannabis stores-withina-store or insist they be entirely separate. Either way, 2019 is going to be the year cannabis retail comes alive.

Labrador c-store offers the unusual: confectionery, cheesecake...

renda and Trevor Tobin prefer the path less travelled. While the two stores they co-own in Labrador City are well stocked with products customers expect – beer, cigarettes and lottery tickets – they also offer up extras that get customers talking and keep them coming back – everything from classic confectionery to cheesecake to cannabis.

“We like to carry products you can’t get anywhere else in town, and we go above and beyond to get them,” says Brenda Tobin, who co-owns Tobin’s Convenience and Tobin’s Mini Mart with her son Trevor and their respective spouses Ed and Krissy. “We’re very busy,” she adds, “because we carry everything from a toothpick to a condom.” The pace is likely to become even more hectic as the c-store owners move full throttle into selling cannabis. Tobin’s is the only location in Labrador City where pot can be legally purchased at the moment with the possibility of another location coming late 2018 in Goose Bay – and the only store in Labrador West to be granted a licence.

Steve Howell, manager, Brenda Tobin and Trevor Tobin, owners

The opportunity to be among the first retailers to sell cannabis was too good to pass up, says Tobin, but getting the government’s seal of approval involved a lot of hard work and long hours. “We sat down night after night after night to prepare the proposal.” The new cannabis outlet is attached to, but physically separate from Tobin’s Mini Mart, with its own entrance, as required until the provincial licensing regulations, says Tobin. The c-store operators have received four days of training and instruction from Cannabis Newfoundland and Labrador that covered everything from lighting and security to sales. Profit for the marijuana products is limited by the government to an eight per cent markup. “You have to sell $250,000 to make $20,000. There’s not big money in it,” notes Tobin. They are hoping, however, there will be larger margins in sales of cannabis-related merchandise such as bongs and pipes.

Meeting customers’ needs requires anticipating those needs. Tobin’s, for example, is the only location in Labrador with a Bitcoin machine. At present, customers can buy the cryptocurrency at the store. “Eventually, we hope to have a machine where you can sell Bitcoin or buy a product with the currency,” says Tobin.

Going the extra mile for customers Tobin's has a history of providing the unusual when customers request it. Brenda points to the store’s selection of retro candy, a customer favourite. For those with a heartier appetite, Tobin’s has a kitchen onsite that dishes up homemade pizza and submarine sandwiches. They even deliver. A baker prepares cheesecakes, fish cakes, cookies, and mouth-watering pies. For Thanksgiving 2017 alone, 51 homemade pies were whisked off the shelf. If customers have a special item they’d like to see in the store, every effort is made to acquire it. Recently, for instance, a customer requested Blue Raspberry Crush. Now the c-store owners have 24 cases on hand.

Snapshot Opened: The Tobins purchased Tobin’s Convenience in February 2015, spent three months renovating the location for a grand opening in May. December 2017 they purchased a second c-store and renamed it Tobin’s Mini Mart. This year they opened High North, Labrador West's only private retail outlet for cannabis.

Location: Labrador City, located in western Labrador near the Quebec border. Population: 8,622 Eclectic items: Everything from home-cooked panzerotti to Spiderman lunchboxes to hand-crafted mailboxes made by Ed.

Giving back: Tobin’s is part of the fabric of life in Labrador City. On Canada

Day, staff fired up the barbecue and served up homemade burgers to celebrate with the community. This is also something staff have done when the power has gone out in town

While the product lines may change, one thing at both Tobin’s c-stores remains constant: fast, friendly customer service. Respecting and relating to customers is a staff requirement, says Tobin. “We greet people as soon as they come in the door.” ◗

Tobin’s Top Tips Treat customers like family. Making customers feel welcome and valued is not just a nice thing to do, when it’s

genuine, it’s smart business. If a customer needs tea bags, for example, and Tobin’s is waiting for its next shipment, Brenda Tobin will walk back to the store kitchen, grab a few, put them in a baggie and hand them to the customer. No charge.

Respect your staff. Employees are the backbone and the face of a store. Treat them well, says Tobin. Their c-stores, for example, offer staff the option of full benefits including life and health insurance.

Ask anyone in Trois-Rivières where to find the most interesting selection of craft beers, and one name comes up. But it’s not just the award-winning selection of Quebec craft beers, the more than 25 years of service, or even the panoply of specialty food items and instore services that owner Julie Lemieux credits most for making her dépanneur, Marché du Boisé, such a popular stop in Trois-Rivières. It’s the good vibe that people get when they walk through the front door. “Whether it’s customers or employees, everyone likes to be treated with kindness and respect,” says Lemieux, the second-generation owner of Marché du Boisé. The store notably carries 1,330 Quebec-made craft beers – the second-most of any store in the province – earning industry accolades and a five-star rating on social media from beer aficionados. “I often hear from people that they like to shop or work here because of the way they’re treated.” It’s a lesson Lemieux learned early in life working alongside her parents, Diane Boivert and Jeannot Lemieux. The couple owned and operated a succession of independent and chain-affiliated c-stores in different Quebec cities, including Hull, Longueuil and Trois-Rivières. Julie Lemieux, owner and Jeannot Lemieux, founder and ex-owner

Julie was 8 when her parents bought the latter store in an Irving-owned building with gas station and car wash next to the highway that links Trois-Rivières

with Montreal, a 90-minute drive west along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. She started working there at age 12 and continued throughout high school. “I did it all, from pumping gas to doing cash and being a clerk,” recalled Lemieux, now 39. “I loved it because you get to know everyone.”

Something for everyone In 1998, when Lemieux left to study business in Montreal, her parents gave up the Irving location and bought an independent store with an Ultramar gas station in a fast-growing yet thickly-wooded residential area north of the city. In addition to regular c-store fare, Marché du Boisé offers a variety of specialty items like fresh-ground coffee, high-end chocolates, homemade bread and beans, an eye-opening, giant self-serve candies counter and slush and granita machines. It also provides a wide range of public and private services ranging from a Canada Post counter and hunting and fishing permits to passes for city buses and nearby snowmobile and all-terrain vehicle trails, dry cleaning, a bank machine, faxes, photocopies and camping-related supplies and equipment. It really is a one-stop shop for the many loyal customers. But it is the courtesy of the store’s staff and the stellar collection of Quebec craft beers that have earned it regional

renown and online praise. “The best store you could want,” reads one recent review on the store’s Facebook page. “An incredible sense of customer service (and) exceptional beer selection.”

Convenience retail in the blood After returning home and working six years as a sales rep for Canadian food giant Saputo in the surrounding Mauricie region, Lemieux spent five years as manager of her parents' store to learn the business and demonstrate her desire to buy it. In June, 2014, she finally made the store her own.

“I always saw the ability to own the store in Julie but I never said anything because I didn’t want to influence her,” said Jeannot Lemieux, a native of Quebec’s rugged Abitibi region, who realized a childhood dream by buying his first convenience store in Hull in his 20s. “I wanted her to get hooked on the business on her own and she did.” Though she credits her parents for building the business, Julie Lemieux has not shied away from making her own mark on the operation. As a young mother of two young girls, she notably enacted an in-house rule in 2015 barring the sale of energy drinks to kids under 16. She also intro-

duced work uniforms emblazoned with a new ‘MB’ logo and made decorative and strategic changes, such as moving chips away from the beer fridges and close to the checkout counter. She also uses social media to promote specials and in-store contests and events like beer tastings, and holds annual events like Christmas and summer pool parties for the store’s 14 employees. “Creating close personal relationships with people is one of the things I like most about this business,” said Lemieux. “But it is stressful being in charge all the time. You have to learn to relax and enjoy the ride.” ◗

Millennials offer up opportunity for convenience retailers Millennials (individuals born between 1980 and 2000, or those who are currently between the ages of 18 and 38 years old), in Canada are mighty in size, but data suggest they’re spending less than their size suggests they should. According to Statistics Canada, Millennials account for 10.1 million consumers across Canada, representing 27.5% of the total population. Despite the big numbers, however, this generation accounts for just 12% ($13.2 billion) of the country’s fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) spending. The upside for manufacturers and retailers, however, is that Millennials lead all generations in dollar spend per trip. So why are they shopping less? Partly because of their increased trips to restaurants, as Millennials led other age cohorts in trips per capita to restaurants in 2017. Canada now has an abundance of restaurant options with eclectic cuisines, which makes dining out a desirable and easy alternative to cooking at home. The news isn’t all bad, however. Even though Millennials make fewer trips than other shoppers, they spend more per trip than any other generation. Millennials spend $55.45 per trip, up $2.11 from last year, and more than $7 above the national average. In addition to shopping trip differences, Millennials shop in different stores and tend to prefer dollar, drug and convenience stores more than the average shopper. In fact, Millennials are 103% more likely to shop in the convenience channel than the average Canadian. But as Millennials shop less, manufacturers and retailers need to work to pull them back into the store. One strategy involves identifying what Millennials are seeking outside the store and finding ways to meet those desires in store. For example, by offering ready-to-go meal kits and a variety of deli-prepared foods from different cultures in store, convenience retailers can provide a new shopping experience that encourages consumers to spend on items they might

otherwise purchase at other out-of-home channels, like restaurants, in a quick and easy channel. Providing a full-service offering with a great experience to a customer within a small store format can be challenging. First, small format stores should continue to defend the areas that differentiate them from large format stores – their convenient location, customer service and the quality and range of foods to ‘eat now’. Raising the bar on areas like offering more of a range to meet their customers’ needs, high quality fresh food, fast checkouts and ease to shop quickly are also ways to compete more closely with large format stores. With dwindling time, and the increasing interest in health and wellness, convenience stores are well positioned to empower consumers to become their perceived selves and provide convenient, healthy options. By focusing on the needs of the convenience consumer, while staying true to the core offering of the channel, manufacturers and retailers in the convenience channel can not only maintain growth but flourish at a time of market disruption.

| November / December 2018

The convenience channel is also well positioned to meet the needs of consumers looking to top up quickly. Convenience stores therefore need to focus on the reasons that shoppers come into their stores for these trips. By honing their offering to become the obvious choice every time someone needs milk, their morning coffee or a great snack for the road, convenience stores will win the trip over other channels. As the Canadian convenience retail landscape evolves, the road is filled with new and unique opportunities to align with consumers' growing interest in quick trips and new product offerings. Convenience retailers that provide consumers with a variety of high-quality, convenient prepared foods will help ensure that consumer dollars, and especially the all-important Millennial dollar, stay in the c-store. Isabel Morales is the manager, consumer insights for Nielsen Canada.

Sniffle season is here

Become the destination for your cough and cold customers Canadian consumers increasingly are using their local convenience store as a destination to pick up their favourite brand of cough and cold medication, throat lozenges and sprays. Figures from Nielsen Canada show that the sale of throat lozenges, cough drops, cold and cough remedies and throat sprays amounted to $19,015,898 for the 52 weeks ending May 26, 2018. Sales of throat lozenges were $16,245,000, cough remedies rose three per cent to $957,184 during the same period, cold remedies six per cent to $1,799,733 and throat sprays 39 per cent to $13,931. “Customers looking to clear up nasal congestions or combat a cold truly appreciate the ease of purchasing relief from their corner store,” says Roberta Dalton, sales and marketing coordinator with TFB & Associates. “While the growth of cough drops in the Convenience and Gas channel is smaller than growth in the Grocery, Drug and Mass Merchandise channel, it is in fact larger than the General Merchandise and Wholesale Club channel, which declined one per cent versus a year ago.”1 The cough segment is experiencing consistent and robust year-over-year growth. “We are excited about the potential for growth of the cough drop category,” says Warren Crowder, president and country manager of Ricola Canada. “People naturally use the item for many purposes in addition to relieving their cough and cold systems – things like breath freshening, allergy symptom relief, voice care and other reasons.

“This trend will continue where sickness levels are up and the duration of sickness is longer,” Ho says. “Retailers should ensure products in this segment have a front-of-store presence because consumers will be looking for them during their visit.

Even with Halls’ position as market leader, growth in this segment is being driven by Fishermen’s Friend lozenges, which outpaced category growth, increased by seven per cent in dollar sales and five per cent in unit sales. Besides flavours, consumers also are trending toward natural and milder solutions made with real ingredients. “Making sure your store offers key brands in flavours consumers love is a great way to ensure that your sales grow along with the category,” Dalton says. Almost 65 per cent of cough sales occur from September through March. During the 2017-18 cough and cold season sick-

Since many purchases in convenience stores are made on impulse, c-retailers have a great opportunity to influence consumers’ purchase decisions. “In-store ads can do just that,” says Dalton. “Making sure your product assortment is in line with the season is critically important, especially in Canada. You don’t want to lose out on potential sales so make sure you have an ample stock of items you know are coming into season.” Having the right variety of products is crucial to success in the category. “Bring in brands and items that will convert existing traffic into new category buyers,” Crowder says. “We are conducting assortment studies to identify white space for unmet consumer benefits within the category. We see a lot of value in this for our retail partners to leverage these new benefits to grow the category. Most people actually do not treat their cough and colds, so there is a lot of opportunity to bring solutions that encourage consumers to treat their symptoms, and boost sales.” ◗ Source: 1.

BACKTALK

6 questions

Russell Large for the new year

to

What do you see as the top trends impacting convenience retail for the year ahead? Foodservice continues to grow and add value to any convenience offer. The right products, in the right space, can help augment declining tobacco sales and build customer loyalty. These products generate higher margins, and combined with a valued branded partner, can offer some opportunities not found in other categories. The key with this category, as any foodservice provider will tell you, is to treat your convenience operation like a restaurant. Cleanliness will make or break any foodservice area, or company providing it, and perhaps continue to reflect on the operation beyond. A clean bathroom speaks volumes to operators' commitment to their customers. What might be some real “dark horse” trends? Prior to the legalization of marijuana in mid-October, many independent sites carried a “pipe” section in a wide variety of styles, sizes and colours – accessories to recreational use at a very high margin. I often viewed these categories as perhaps problematic, but the steadfast rule of retailing, convenience included, is to sell your customer what they want, not what you want to sell them. The reality is that treated like any other key category (merchandised, monitored and measured correctly) it can provide huge margins in a relatively small space. This is a very dynamic category, and there is a much deeper social conversation to be had, but there is a great opportunity to turn a once “dark horse” category into a thriving part of any responsibly run convenience location.

How would you advise c-retailers to stay on top of the trends? Staying on top of trends, either up or down, requires a good POS system. As the days of the “open cash drawer” continue to tie the retailer's hands to what is actually being sold, and more importantly, what is not, this is invaluable. As an independent retailer you need the ability to look at key category sales without “product bias” or external influences. Products need to be identified that either need more space as the category grows and ties into their offerings, or one that needs to be cut back, marked down and eliminated. Taking markdowns is often very difficult for retailers, as they look at it as losing money, but it is part of the business. Knowing what your margins are on any given product can help you make informed decisions when it comes time to adjust, and that time will come. A good POS system can make this much easier, and as the market continues to evolve, app-based payment systems will streamline this into a variable customer registry. How can they turn trends into opportunities? Turning trends into opportunities can be as simple as identifying which categories are experiencing growth, binding one or more of them together, and increasing product turns in both. Increasingly it’s also about finding that new little product, fidget spinners come to mind, and taking advantage of their small footprint and large margins. Foodservice areas are great to expand your customer base while increasing your percentage of sales in other tied categories, such as FCB beverages. This

category alone, done well in a clean environment, can impact your bottom line like no other today. When tied into a system that not only provides transactional information, but real time customer interaction, product sales and preferences for that specific customer, this category can be used to reach far beyond its footprint. In the past year what’s the biggest game changer you’ve seen in retail with an impact on convenience? Perhaps today in retail, like no other time, operators are planning their space. This starts with the size of the location and continues into each category footprint and product. It’s gotten that competitive out there. With a more compact space, customer retention or loyalty is helping to define retailers in their respective channels, and making sense of that information is now key. App-based payment systems and frictionless technology are driving this new way of doing business and tracking customer behaviour and purchases. Being able to see what was sold, when and exactly to whom will help target existing customers with promos and cross-over specials, while making sure key demographic information is used to help improve products offered, positioning and price point. Millennials may be driving this new aspect of convenience retailing and payment structure, but anyone who is vested in the technology will find themselves better understanding their customers and serving their needs.

The new year is a time for resolutions. What should c-store operators resolve to do in the coming year? If there was one resolution that c-store operators should make for the New Year, perhaps it should be a year-end look at their business, from a category performance point of view. Retailers should know their demographics and who their customers are, but also be in touch enough that they can help to anticipate needs and possible product realignment. Perhaps the neighbourhood has changed; perhaps there’s a new school opening. Understanding where your business is headed, prior to the shift, is the difference between a good retailer and a great one. A good retailer knows that their tobacco sales are declining; a great retailer augments the declining sales with other profitable categories and gives space to the new innovative products that will become the product(s) that move their business forward.
