The only Circle K I ever actually saw was in down state Illinois many moons ago when I was a child. And that store was even open. It was an abandoned store, overgrown with weeds with the Circle K sign on the ground.

And the dumbest name for a company today is: "Couche-Tard"

"Man, he is such a couch tard he won't even get up to go to the bathroom!"

/I assume it's French because the company is Canadian

Locally, we had Lawson's convenience stores. Those got bought up by Dairy Mart, which in turn got bought up by Circle K.
We also had Bonded gas stations, which got bought up by $peedway. Then we had Super America gas stations, which also got bought up by $peedway.
The Midwest gets huge price hikes in gas (20-50 cents in a DAY) because $peedway controls the markets and sets the price. Will this Voltron of CIrcle K/$peedway change this? Very doubtful.

And their gas is absolute crap.

Couche-tard was my nickname in high school

Convenience stores with gas stations make about half their money from fuel

No, just . . No.  Gas is a pennies on the dollar loss leader to get people in the door.  Stopped reading there.  Should have stopped reading at New York Post
