Supposed "conveniences" also sometimes turn out to be a nuisance, including personal computers (can be difficult to use, though this is improving gradually) and mobile phones (with annoying rings and conversations in what would or should be a quiet place).
Conveniences also cost money to fix when they break down, and may cause much greater costs if something else that depends on them cannot take place.
On the other hand, conveniences such as direct deposit can save everyone money, though this may or may not be passed along to the consumer.
Conveniencestores may be combined with other services, such as a train station ticket counter or a post office counter.
Prices in a conveniencestore are typically higher than at a supermarket, mass merchandise store, or auto supply store (with the exception of the goods such as milk, soda and fuel in which conveniencestores traditionally do high volume and sometimes use as loss leaders).
Conveniencestores in Pennsylvania generally do not have liquor licenses, while stores in Florida may have a limited license to sell beer and wine.
