McColl's provides local communities with a full range of amenities and neighbourhood services at a competitive price. The Group is focused on developing and expanding the convenience side of its business, which currently accounts for over half of the store portfolio.
The convenience side of our business is where we see significant opportunity for growth. Growth will be supported by the acquisition of further quality independent convenience stores as well as by converting our existing newsagent stores to convenience format. We will work to improve the customer offer across our convenience store portfolio, particularly in terms of fresh and chilled produce.
We will also expand the range and services in our newsagents and variety stores to cater for changing consumer needs, such as increasing the number of Post Offices we operate. Significant investment has already been made to improve store standards and the customer experience.
