The convenience stores in Florida have a statutory duty. They have certain duties under the law. But they also have common law duties. The statutory duties are things like signage, lighting, posting warnings, things of that nature. If they violate those then they are negligent. But even if they comply with all of the convenience store requirements, they can still be held liable for negligence if they fail to take reasonable precautions to protect people. It might mean having a security guard from nine to midnight. It might mean closing early. It might mean having two cashiers instead of one.
