The article focuses on an incident in which an editor of the journal Convenience Store News found an interesting twist on the gas station/convenience store combo at a Gulf station in Holtsville, New York. Instead of a convenience store, this gas station had 25 coolers in a ring around the open-air property, stocked with beverages including Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Vitamin-Water, Mistic and Arizona teas. There were also racks of snacks near the clerk's booth in the center of the gas island. While it was unique, she might have been a little hesitant about venturing to the edge of the property, several yards from the gas pumps, to get a beverage if it was raining.
