About the Competition

Why does our competition focus on Convenience Stores?

People in modern cities now are relying on convenience stores. A lot of convenience stores are 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, ensuring that you can satisfy your hunger even when your refrigerator is empty. Convenience stores are a "late-night cafeteria" that remains open for you during the night, serving as a "rescue station" where you can find emergency supplies and even a popular spot for checking on social media.

Yes! Convenience stores make our life become more convenient. In addition to selling daily necessities and snacks, convenience stores can evolve into multifunctional places that cater to the local residents’ needs. We hope that by involving young people in the operation of convenience stores, we can help residents in the community solve their problems and enhance their well-being.
