Exactly what I've been thinking. This should be good!

Yep, Spinx will definitely have to change to compete with QT. QT is the "platinum standard" in the convenience store industry.

By the way, one of the area QT's, on Clemson Blvd in Anderson, is looking close to completion of the building.

The QT's in the area wil be the latest prototype which look like this:

I'm hearing large gas station/conv store going in or near Easley Town Center... Any mention if Quick Trip is looking at Easley...There's really no good gas station/ conv stores on the stretch of highway between the Pville Rd intersection and 153 so this would not be a bad location

QT is good, but IMHO Wawa and Sheetz are a little better.

I like Wawa and Sheetz as well. There is a great Wawa in downtown Williamsburg I always love to stop in. The thing about Wawa is that their stores are not as consistently set-up. Love Sheetz. Tough toss up for me between the three. QT tips it for me with their QT Kitchens.

Personally, I'd love to see 7-11 make it's way to the Upstate. The one thing I really miss about my hometown is being able to get a Slurpee whenever the desire hit me.

I miss Slurpees too (7-11 served my hometown in Alabama, but left many years ago). However, I think comparing 7-11 to QT/Wawa/Sheetz is like comparing a Honda Civic to a BMW 5-series!

I've never been to either of those 3, but I'm looking forward to seeing what QT has to offer.
