In Taiwan, 24-hour convenience chain stores such as Seven-Eleven, Family Mart, Hi-Life, Circle K and Taisugar could be seen everywhere. Taiwan's density of convenience stores ranks first in the world.

The Taiwanese authority “Fair Trade Commission” has carried out industrial investigations on the five major convenience store brands for many years. The latest investigation report published on Jan. 2 showed that Taiwan had 9,483 convenience stores in total in the end of 2010.

In addition to launching new products, weeding out old products and providing diversified products, Taiwan's convenience chain stores also offer services such as online order and ATM service.
