We've tried their chicken biscuit sandwiches and they are very good. The location on Hwy 101 has them at 2 for $4, which is an great price.

Spinx gas is always more expensive, and the inside of their stores isn't anything special. In many cases I'd say their stores are older and less well-kept with fewer options than their competitors. I don't know how they stay in business.



When I've made similar observations about companies in other industries the answer has sometimes been "company A with all the new stuff and the huge options and low prices is highly leveraged, tryign to drive out the competition with unsustainably low prices and unsustainably high services, and company B has no debt"

In my area, Spinx is always the first to raise prices and the last to drop prices on gas. Directly across the street, a station can be 10 cents or more cheaper, but people are filling up at Spinx. Strange.

V-go Holdings LLC owns the property. It will be a V-go store similar to Roper Mountain Road at Keys Drive.

Certainly one of the better looking gas/convenience stores in the area.

Believe it’s the same price as the 7-11 down the street for their grand opening. Appears to be a price war. Bring it on!
