In England major supermarket chains have smaller local stores. These are called 'Express' stores. So Tesco would become Tesco Express.
Corner shop is an English term for a small convenience store where you may buy small snacks, cigarettes etc.
Newsagents is a more formal term for a corner shop. They are also a small shop who sell newspapers and other small snacks and drinks.

The formal definition of the small store is called a convenience store. Most of the time convenience stores are located at gas stations. Sometimes saying convenience stores is hard to say so most people in America call the store the gas station. For example you can say " We can stop at the gas station to get gas and snacks."

Truck stops are also part gas station, convenience store, and bathrooms with showers. Semi- truck drivers usually need a place to stop and grab snack as well as use the bathroom and possibly shower. These stores are usually slightly bigger than a convenience store or gas station.

'Convenience store' this is a word used for stores that have lots of everyday products such as milk, eggs, and soap. They are often the closest store to where you live

'Superette' this is a word used to describe miniature supermarkets

'Corner store' this is a term used to describe local stores that have many items in small quantities and are very convenient if you forget something

Convenience store is the most commonly used phrase - a local store which conveniently sells everyday items.
Corner store/shop is another name for this time of store - they don’t have to be on a corner though!

Examples:

I need to go to the convenience store to get some milk, do you want me to get anything for you?

Do you know if the Mini mart is open for 24 hours? I'm feeling really hungry at the moment.

They just opened up a new convenience store up just up the street, there is no need to drive all the way into town now.

A mini-mart, convenience store, and corner store are all types of small stores that sell a variety of products. These are stores that are generally small, and sometimes located very closely to where you can get gas for your car. Some examples of these stores are 7-Eleven and Cirlce K.

In Ireland, we usually refer to this type of place as a shop. Shops sell everything like bread, milk, cigarettes and sometimes alcohol if they have a license for it.

A store is a more American way of saying shop. You would hear this more in the USA and Canada rather than in Ireland.

"I need to go to the shop. We don't have any milk left".

"I have to go to the store to by groceries for the week".

The main word that I would use to describe something such as a 7-eleven or a circle K would be called a, "convenience store." Sometimes they might be called a, "corner store," but I believe that this is a more dated term for it.

Example sentences :
- I went to a convenience store to buy some snacks.
- I love the hot foods they sell at my local convenience store.

The examples that you provided (7-Eleven, Circle K, etc) are known as convenience stores in the United States. Sometimes we will mention a convenience store by name (like 7-Eleven, Circle K), and in a few regions, there can be different variations to the name, like corner store, corner shop, or package store.

I would refer to this type of store as a 'corner store' if it's smaller, or a "convenience store" if it's larger. A corner store would usually refer to a smaller store that tends to be 'on every corner', and sells everyday items and some food items.
A "convenience store"would be a larger store, usually part of a chain rather than independently owned like a corner store.
Example: I'm going to run over to the corner store to grab some chips.
Would you mind stopping by the convenience store on your way home to pick up some toothpaste?

The shop that has your every day things, and is usually a little bit more expensive, in English, in Britain at least, is called a corner shop. Also, if I was going to the corner shop, I would just refer to it as the shop, shortening its name.

I hope this helps.
Have a great day.

Konbini in Japanese means a 'convenience store' or 'corner shop' in the UK. You could also just say 'the local shop'.
Eg "I'm just going down to the local shop to pick up some milk."
"Convenience stores are often open late."

This totally depends on the country you are in and what the name of the shop is. For example in Ireland we have local shops which we usually just name after either the person who runs it or the small village that it is in.
Example: I'm going up to Phils, does anyone need anything? (Phil is the name of the man who owns the shop.)
