 For the second year, convenience stores have grown in the US, firmly reversing a four-year decline in previous years. Convenience Store News reports that the number of U.S. convenience stores stands at 150,174 nationwide according to the 2024 NACS/NielsenIQ Convenience Industry Store Count, making the industry more competitive than ever. Over 63 percent of those are single-store operators, who largely drove the increase. The increase happened in 43 states – Texas has the most locations with more than 16,000 stores.
