While traveling through Thomasville, Georgia., a CSNews editor stopped in a Sunrise Pantry store for a beverage. There were several 2-for-1 deals going on in the store, but there was also a noticeable need to restock most of the beverage coolers. The editor opted for a smaller $1.49 Gatorade sports bottle rather than the two 32-ounce bottles for $3, as it seemed too much beverage for the trip ahead.
