So established is Circle K 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 Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including Ball Park hot dogs. 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.

Located in Sears stores or at adjacent offices, Sears Optical's independent optometrists screen peepers to determine accurate prescriptions and diagnose any health problems. As doctors position a refractive device over the eyes, flipping through lenses of varying strengths, patients describe the level of clarity with which they can see the purple zebra dancing in the far corner. In addition to the prescriptive exam, doctors may use eye drops to dilate the pupil to scrutinize the retina.
Road Runner Auto Wash drastically improves vehicular hygiene with automatic car-cleansing stations designed to clean and glisten the exterior.

Voted best car wash in the Denver area by CityVoter, Bear's Car Wash & Detail Center takes a meticulous approach to purifying autos. Ozone-treated water rinses away environmentally friendly solvents, whose corrosion- and hazard-free formulas dissipate dirt and other debris during car washes through an automated tunnel. Detailing packages treat cars to hand-applied carnauba wax, carpet shampoo, leather conditioning, and other luxe spruce-ups. No matter the service, each newly cleansed car receives a thorough hand-dry with soft towels. Drivers can watch through observation windows as their rides roll through the wash tunnel, or sip a drink from the cappuccino bar in the sitting area while perusing car accessories and novelty items such as speed-bump-sized whoopee cushions.
Rocket Express Car Wash keeps cars sparkling clean using sustainable practices including using recycled water for washes and saving on electrical usage with PurWater and PurClean systems.
