convenio
 n.— «I have not yet been able to figure out the role that these convenios play in our Indian scenario. Sure, out West they’re an established retail format, their raison d’etre being convenience of shopping (while you fill fuel), you buy your tobacco/ soft drink/ beer …or if you’ve run out of eggs, you just drive down to your closest convenience store, and pick them up—no wandering through massive aisles of merchandise, no standing in long lines—sure, you pay a little extra, but then it’s convenient.» —“The search for an Indian retail model” by Sangita Joshi The Hindu Business Line (India) Oct. 21, 2004.
