Be it gas, a coffee on the run, a snack, or some household food emergency the business that is open around the clock has what you need but more importantly it has a friendly and helpful staff.
I needed change one weekend morning and went in to get some loonies. The clerk had a closed til so off he went picked up a piece of penny candy fished out a couple of cents from his pocket and opened the til and got me my change. It would be remarkable if this was a one time thing but the fact is that the cheerful staff in this corner store will go out of their way to help out their customers.
I met the manager, Meloney a couple of weeks ago when I wanted to do the impossible. Return a telephone card which are not refundable. but, I gave her my story she made a phone call and I walked out with my money back.
We can all get excited about the kind of business that shows up in our town but the real proof is the personal attention that the staff of a business give to the customer and in that regard, 7 - 11 is a winner.
