    Default What is the difference of using "Convenience Store and Convenient Store"?

    Dear Teachers,


    What is the difference of using "Convenience Store and Convenient Store"? I would like to know the exact meaning or meanings of both phrases. Can I use Convenient Store instead of Convenience store?


    Straightforward speaking, I would prefer any English-native speakers to elaborate on this matter on how they think and understand about the definitions of both phrases, so that a foreigner like me can use them correctly and the rules explained about them will be used as a reference for other words such as Happy Place and Happiness Place or Administrative Unit and Administration Unit, etc.

    Thank you in advance.

    NOT A TEACHER.

    "Convenient store" is not necessarily wrong, just unlikely to be said. It would mean that the store is convenient.
