Convenient Food Mart

This one looks quite a bit more modern than the one we had

Spotted this Convenient Food Mart in St. Louis. Nothing special, other than our hometown had one of these down in the village with the local pizza joint next to it.

Convenient was the place we went after school once we had cars or were privy to ride with the kids who did.

Convenient and the pizza place was also where we hung out after football games and any other extracurricular activities.

It was the place you went to linger in the parking lot to see if old alumni would buy you beer.

The cops hung out there a lot, with good reason.

It changed into some other nameless mini-mart a long long time ago.

The partial rainbow signage brings back memories of bad hair and questionable 80’s radio.
