We seem to have a fair few convenience type stores pop.up sometimes next to each other that I think the same about.

You'd be surprised the footfall and turn over even small convenience shops have. It seems to be quite common for them to be family run, and for them to basically spend their waking life in the shop (I been in plenty where there's a TV with Corrie on) and to do very long hours. It'd be a tough way to make a living, but I don't doubt it's a way to make one.
