The Store Gas Station Coffee Bar

You’re probably familiar with The Store’s tagline: Gas, Food & More! But what exactly does that mean, what’s included in the “More” category, and why should you care anyway?  

 

Well, our tagline conveys one key point…The Store is your one stop shop for everything you might need to refuel your vehicle and yourself.  

The Store is not just any old convenience store, and we’re proud of that! Let us explain:  

Gas 

This is the obvious one…we have gas to keep your car moving! Leaded, unleaded, premium, diesel, we’ve got it all! No matter what your ride needs, we’ve got fuel at low prices and convenient locations. And the coolest part? We proudly sell North American fuel products, helping to support American jobs and keep your money in our communities. Whether you’re gassing up on your way home from work or before heading off on a road trip, trust us to provide great fuel at awesome prices! 

Food 

Alright, now we’re on to the second (and more delicious) part of our tagline. Before you roll your eyes and think “Doesn’t every convenience store have food?” hear us out. Plenty of C Stores might have food, but it’s not like our food! 

Of course, we offer typical gas station snacks: candy bars, chips, beef jerky, granola bars, soda, juice and the like. Not to toot our own horn, but you’ll find a pretty wide range of these products at every location of The Store! Additionally, The Store has a large bakery selection with fresh cookies, muffins, donuts and pastries. However, it’s what we offer outside of these items that we think really sets us apart. 

When you visit us, you’ll find fresh-brewed Aromas coffee to help you to make the most out of your day. Whether your palate favors black, flavored, or seasonal coffee, we’ve got you covered.  

And the fresh beverage choices don’t stop there! In most markets, you’ll find Bean-To-Cup and F’real machines! What are these intriguing contraptions, you might ask? Our Bean-To-Cup machines grind and brew delicious coffee beans right before your eyes…it doesn’t get any fresher than that! And, to make things cooler (literally), the F’real machines allow you to customize milk shakes, smoothies, and blended coffee drinks in a variety of flavors. Try ‘em out…these drinks are almost as fun to make as they are to drink! 

Mmm…smell that? That tasty scent is coming from our hot, fresh, ready-to-go food selections! In the mood for a burger, fries, cheese curds, or fried chicken? We have all these options and many more at The Store! We’re all about offering quick, convenient, and quality options to our Guests.  

Whether you need a quick breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner for the family, The Store has everything you need! 

More 

But wait, there’s still more! 

In addition to gas, snacks, beverages, fresh bakery items and hot food selections, you’ll find a whole lot more within our aisles.  

From cough drops to air fresheners and Advil to auto oil, The Store has your everyday needs covered. Out of milk, bread, butter, or eggs? Skip a trip to the supermarket and pick up these household staples much more quickly at The Store! 

But what’s the very best thing you can find at The Store? Our helpful, kind, smiling Associates, of course! 

No matter where or when you visit The Store, a friendly face is sure to greet you and help you find whatever it is you might need. Our top priority is great Guest service – let us help make every day more friendly and convenient for your family.  

So, the next time you need gas, food or more, we’ll see you at The Store! 

Haul Before the Hunt with Products from The Store WI and MI

Tis the season… hunting season, that is! No matter whether you’re going after antlers, fur, or feathers, there’s a few things ALL hunters need before heading out to the tree stand or duck blind.

1. A Steaming Cup of Joe

First things first… coffee! We know you’re up before the sun to get ready and trek out to your secret hunting spot. It’s not always easy to wake up before 6 am knowing you’ll be sitting out in the cold waiting for an animal or two to come meandering by, though.

But hey, don’t worry! We’ve got just the thing to motivate those early mornings and keep you toasty out in the wilderness: a fresh cup of coffee from The Store! You’ll always find Aromas coffee hot, delicious and ready to go. No matter what gets you going in the morning… fresh ground, black, flavored, blended, or cappuccino flavors… we’ve got it all. (Pro Tip: we even have camouflage cups. Pretty cool, huh?)

2. Warm Hands = Steady Aim

On to the next order of business… how will you keep your hands from freezing after the coffee is all gone? The last thing you want is for your hands to be shivering and unsteady from the cold while you’re aiming at the biggest buck or flock you’ve ever seen in your life. Trust us, the nerves won’t help with that either!

Not to fear, you can pick up hand warmers at The Store! Remember to grab a few sets, along with your morning coffee, to ensure you’ll be toasty and prepared all hunt long!

3. Beat the Mid-Morning Munchies

By now, you’ve been sitting in your stand or blind for a few hours without much luck. Your stomach is grumbling and your patience is wearing thin. What can you do? You definitely can’t head in yet!

Well, we can help you out here too. The Store has an amazing selection of snacks to help keep your hunger at bay and your focus on the hunt.

Candy bars, cheese curds, meat sticks, cookies, and beef jerky are just a few of the many options. We suggest steering clear of crunchy foods while you’re out hunting, though – we’d hate for your bag of chips to scare away the critters!

4. Beer, Beer & More Beer

Well, you’re back in from the woods. Whether or not you managed to snag that big buck or a few plump ducks, your dedication to the hunt deserves to be celebrated!

Gather your hunting buddies, cook up a hearty dinner, and knock back a few brews. The Store has everything ranging from local and domestic beer to seasonal and unique flavors.

Whatever you’re feeling, make sure to pick up enough to get you and your crew through the whole weekend. After all, this is the one of the best parts of hunting season!

5. Did Anyone Bring Advil?

It’s Sunday morning of opening weekend and you’re feeling worse for wear. You’re up early to squeeze in some time in the woods, but after a late night filled with good beer and great friends, we’ll that can bring on a headache in the toughest of us.

Lucky for you, you remembered to grab Advil from The Store! Wash two of those life-saving tablets down with a big glass of water, and viola, your morning hunt is saved! Good thing you got your hunting essentials from The Store, huh?

 

We wish all hunters a safe, fun, and prosperous season. No matter what your hunting needs are, we’ve got you covered. Head over to The Store to stock up on the necessities to keep you fueled, warm, and fed all autumn long. Happy hunting!

Salvation Army volunteer smiling

Maybe you’ve noticed them – the brightly colored paper kettles that line the walls of The Store during the holiday season. They’re cheery, vibrant, and festive, depicting the iconic Salvation Army Red Kettle that we’ve all grown accustomed to seeing outside of the grocery store or in the mall this time of year.

But what is the significance of these pieces of paper proudly posted by The Store Associates for all to see? You can probably guess that this is The Store’s unique version of the Red Kettle fundraising effort that supports the Salvation Army for the past 7 holiday seasons. That’s great, but how big of a deal is it? After all, what difference could some colorful pieces of paper make?

Well, the important thing isn’t the slips of paper themselves, but instead what they represent. Look closely and you’ll see that each Paper Kettle is printed with either $1, $5, or $10 increments and displays the signature of the donator. Every Paper Kettle symbolizes and celebrates a donation as well as the individual who generously gave to support the cause.

What does the money support, you might ask? The Salvation Army exists to meet human needs in many forms. Providing shelter, supplying food, and supporting veterans are a few of the well-known deeds performed by the Salvation Army. They do much more, however, including educating children, helping disaster survivors, battling human trafficking, and fighting to prevent domestic abuse.

The Store has been supporting and promoting the Paper Kettle Campaign since 2013 and shows no sign of slowing down. To date, $98,871.31 has collectively been raised with the support of The Store Guests through this effort, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Salvation Army. The coolest part, though? The money raised at each The Store location stays local. This means funds are given to the Salvation Army Center nearest each convenience store. By doing this, The Store and generous Guests are helping relieve needs in their local areas.

The 2019 Paper Kettle Campaign is underway and continues until December 31st. Next time you stop in, please consider donating in support of the Salvation Army. After all, it is the season of giving!
