Working with corner stores to provide healthy options can be a strategic
economic and public health investment. The convenience of small stores,
both because they are so widespread and cater to on-the-go eating,
makes them an important venue for increasing access to healthy foods
in communities. Increasing healthy products in stores can also help
stimulate local economies by creating jobs for local residents, capturing
dollars that would otherwise be spent outside of the community, and
revitalizing neighborhoods by serving as retail anchors.
