Independent Convenience Stores

This Cross-party group's purpose:

Inform MSPs of the issues and challenges facing independent convenience stores and to highlight the contribution local neighbourhood shops make to Scotland’s communities – particularly helping to sustain rural and marginalised urban communities - and to Scotland’s economy (the sector employs 47,000 people directly; the value of sales is £4bn annually and the sector contributes £530 million in GVA to Scotland’s economy per annum). The group will bring together the key stakeholders in the independent convenience store sector: retailers, wholesalers, manufacturers, and trade associations. invite guest speakers to participate, including Scottish government Ministers and officials.
