SAN ANTONIO San Antonio's convenience store scene is about to get more crowded: Circle K, a chain with more than 3,300 stores in the U.S., plans to build its first local store on the Northeast Side. The Arizona-based chain plans to build a 5,881 square-foot convenience store and gas station at 3804 N. Foster Rd., across the road from a Walmart. Construction of the $2.1 million store is set to begin in February and wrap up in August, according to filings with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

I remember Circle K from when I was a kid living in SA. Back then there were Diamond Shamrocks, Stop N Go's, and Circle K's all over SA.


Back then there were three types of gasoline in 80's-90's, Regular, Unleaded, and Super Unleaded.


Those were the days...

I would have said it was longer ago than that. Still Im sure as the city has grown it has opened up more opportunity for competition. Probably the same reason 7-11 is back after selling to (then) Stop & Go 20-odd years ago.

Yup, I forgot about 7/11 back in the day, they were located at Zarzamora and 35 at what today is a Valero Corner Store.

Did San Antonio ever have those totem pole stations? I am unsure of the actual name of these stations as it was before my time.

I grew up in the Valley Hi area and remember that the Valero on the corner of 410 and Medina Base road used to be Mr. M's. It then changed into either a Circle K or Diamond Shamrock before it becoming a Valero.

Remember when the Citgo gas pumps had a rotary selector for their 10 grades of gas ?
