Scratchers, smokes, Colt 45 … and a greasy bird
|Some like it hot…and greasy|
My friend Truman lives in one of the older neighborhoods east of Troost: “You know, baby,” he says, “the land without big shiny supermarkets, but lots of little stop-n-shops.” He says one of the biggest difference between convenience stores in the inner city and those in the suburbs is the style of carry-out foods.
“QuikTrip is like a fancy restaurant compared to most independently owned urban shops,” he says. “At QT you can get a variety of hot or cold sandwiches, fruit-and-cheese plates, crudite with dip, cheeseburgers and breakfast sandwiches. In my neighborhood, it’s limited to candy, cigarettes and fried chicken.”
