Système U Plans Convenience Expansion Drive

Système U has announced that it plans to double the number of convenience stores that it operates in France by 2020, with the aim of driving c-store sales to around €3 billion.

According to French newspaper Rayon Boissons, the group is seeking to have convenience-store sales account for 15 per cent of turnover by the end of the decade, up from 9.5 per cent in 2014.

C-store sales at the group stood at €1.8 billion last year.

To achieve its goals, Système U is planning to unveil three new concepts for its U Express brand: a typical local suburban store (800-1200 square metres), an urban city-centre concept store (300-800 square metres) and a rural primary food-shop concept (800-1,500 square metres).
