I know the name is kinda like lol, but they're pretty nice convenient stores. I've been in some before when I was in Iowa. Also, I think it's a good thing that a company would like to invest money in our city and state.

Yeah, stupid name but their stores are newer and well kept. Hopefully will make 7-11 emodel their dumpy stores. Plus more jobs.

I can't figure out if spelling Kum with a K makes it better or worse than using a C.

They need a "unique" spelling / name so that search engines pick it up; if they spell it "come and go" google will returns millions of hits, none of them the one for the business.

Pretty sure K&G was around long before Google was thought of....ha.

News :: Kum & Go - The Latest from Kum & Go

Midwestern Retailer plans to invest $70-80 Million, build 20-25 stores and create 150 new jobs

Can't really hate that though. Already have the General Manager positions posted on their website.

We saw them when we drove to Steamboat from San Diego with our daughter's 14yo softball team. That was 15 years ago. I can remember because of the giggling when we put gas in the car
