Respond to market trends

Consumer needs have become so sophisticated in recent times that petrol forecourt retailers have had to respond with fresh food, hot food and other desirable grocery offers.

The Safeway approach was to ensure that its petrol forecourt channel became a convenient extension to its ‘Best at Fresh’ strategy. Also paramount was that the offer of distress purchases and convenience grocery lines-traditionally tobacco and confectionery was the addition of a full top-up shop and home meal replacement offer.

The walk-on trade and non-fuel buying car drivers were vital elements for commercial success, and critical to the appeal was the creation of a store environment that increased customer dwell time and maximised the retail space for higher-margin lines.

The in-store planning and design ensured that the forecourt showcased a wide selection of fresh foods and quality food-to-go. Bread, fresh fruit, vegetables and pizza, as well as fresh ready meals and treats were attractively and authoritatively merchandised, giving the consumer a compelling choice.
