So established is Circle K Midwest that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.
After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Fresh Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including sandwiches, fruit cups, and fresh-cut vegetables. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with premium coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.
Staffers at Danville Trading Post love finding creative ways to link up antique and gently used merchandise with the community: they promised, for example, to give away a vintage wedding dress to whomever it fit first, and sure enough, the gown soon found a new closet free of charge. Though the inventory constantly changes, treasure hunters can find plenty of unique and historic items for sale, from vintage Coca-Cola vending machines to TV screens.
As the MIDWEST'S LARGEST Bridal, Prom and Pageant store, we would love to have you stop in to see our huge selection of thousands of gowns by the World's greatest designers!
At Bridal Elegance we understand the importance of your occassion, and want to help you look and feel your best.
A self-described "gate-to-plate company," Moody's Butcher Shop sources its meat from the family’s own Lone Pine Farms, where Adam Moody raises free-range chickens, pigs, cows, and lambs. Along with selling products from their own farms, the Moody Butcher Shop family also supports other farmers by purchasing their meat products to help sustain the community and ensure that only high-quality and fresh cuts of meat are sold there.
Indicative of the Moodys’ longtime butchering skills, the shop sells a variety of pork and beef cuts that can meet the demands of any recipe, from loins to roasts and steaks. Hand-stuffed sausages run the gamut from chicken to chorizo, and smoked meats give customers several bacon and ham options.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
