How and why do people choose a name for their convenience store business?
we have ’7-Eleven,’ ‘Zippy Mart,’
‘AM/PM,’ ‘Circle K,’ and ‘Stop & Go,’
those are the ones I can think of quickly
that I see around Seattle.

For the fun of it I did a Google search,
and here are some of the names of convenience stores I found:
‘Loaf ‘n Jug,’ ‘Kum & Go,’ ‘Gross Convenience Store,’ (Really?)
‘Quick Stop,’ ‘In & Out,’ ‘Kwik-E-Mart,’
‘One Stop’ and ‘Hasty Market.’

in the small northwestern Washington town of Sumas,
we find the ‘Super Duper Foodstore.’
: : :
Sumas is one of two U.S./Canada border crossings
between Washington and British Columbia,
the other is at Blaine which is on busy Interstate 5.
The drive up State Route 9 to Sumas
travels at a much more leisurely pace
on two lane black top,
with lots of farms and barns and majestic mountain views.

Canadians (well of course, Americans too)
are welcome at the Super Duper
where Canadian money is accepted at par,
there are high flow diesel pumps for the truckers,
a dairy outlet,
and oh let’s not forget the ‘beer cave.’
A beer cave?
One wonders what is that exactly,
and how does it fit into a convenience store format?

What are some names of convenience stores
in your neck of the woods?
