Tommy’s Handy Mart is primarily a chain of convenience stores, with some locations operating as smoke shops. Its competitive advantage is its everyday low-pricing strategy and approachable small-town store settings.
Some locations serve rural communities and are a mini-grocery store for customers. Not all the stores are identical, and products differ according to the store’s size and the neighborhood.
Foodservice options at Tommy’s Handy Mart include limited-service, self-serve and quick-service restaurant options. Prepared foods available include sandwiches and subs, and some stores offer hot items such as hot dogs and burgers.
The chain has two loyalty programs: One is a kick-back program that pays a penny to customers for every dollar spent on gas or in-store purchases, and the other is a points system in which customers can earn points that can be used for discounts on in-store items such as fountain drinks or snacks.
