The article focuses on the experiences of convenience store editors while shopping in the U.S. On Christmas morning in Coral Springs, Florida, the editor was in desperate search for some breakfast sweets. A friendly clerk at a nearby Mobil location helped, with a combination of fresh baked items and pre-packaged snacks. Another editor, who made a late-night stop at a convenience store in Pennsylvania, noticed the floor looked dingy, receipts flowed from the top of an ATM trash can and the fountain and coffee areas were sticky and stained. The next day when she returned, she found the same conditions. She decided to shop at a competitor instead.
