ACS (The Association of Convenience Stores) has been campaigning for the government to extend the energy bills relief scheme for convenience retailers.

The ACS have made clear that convenience stores are essential businesses and if further support is not offer a significant number of convenience stores would be at risk.

The government issued their Energy Bill Relief Scheme in September and discounts are automatically applied to retailers’ bills from October 2022.

The relief is only available for businesses until March 2023, this survey will inform the government thinking on what businesses should get further support.
