It hit me yesterday, when I stopped on my bicycle ride to grab a Bug Juice for my eight year-old (not to mention a thirst quencher for me), that I hadn’t done a review of a place I visit more than any other business in our small town: the Strasburg Convenience Store.
As a “convenience store it definitely” is convenient. It has anything you might expect, has reasonable prices, and is open most of the time a regular human would be awake. 🙂 (Okay, I’ll admit I don’t know its exact hours…but I’ve only once been on the road earlier than it has been open, and I think it closes at 10PM most nights.)
What really makes the store an awesome place is its employees. Not a single one is a grump, and most are as congenial as they come. I have to especially do a shout-out to Dave, who was a friendly face the first time we visited Strasburg. Snowstorm and all he was working and gave us some pointers on where we might buy a house. Now, I could mention more names, but they are all great…although…okay…Amanda and Chantelle do seem to be there a lot when I arrive and are also superb! 🙂
Well, back to the review. The inside of the store is a bit rough…but don’t let that fool you. The place is clean and well-stocked. When it comes to cooked food, my little guy especially likes their pizza…and they make amazing breakfast sandwiches that are only $1.99. (My favorite is the egg, cheese, and bratwurst on Texas toast.) The hotdog type items do occasionally look a bit sketchy, but that’s why we have eyes. 🙂 Ultimately, if you are hungry for something (basically) healthy or junk food…you’ll find it there (along with the various “convenience” items you may suddenly need, but don’t want to drive a long distance for…e.g. if you run out of a pain killer, needs some batteries, etc.)
Punch line? We give the Strasburg Convenience Store 4 out of 5 bulls and a hearty “We Recommend!”
How about you? If you’ve visited the Strasburg Convenience Store, how would you rate it? Hope to see you there during one of my frequent visits!
