This one has been mooted about in Have Your Say for a couple of days now, but Circle K on Bethel Church Road closed today.

This store was once a Kangaroo Express and went to Circle K a few years ago when Kangaroo was bought out. The building is smaller than the new Circle K concept you see in recent construction like Forest Drive & Harbison, plus another convenience store recently opened across the street in the old Ravenwood Pharmacy, neither of which can have helped.

The gas prices were not particularly low here, but I enjoyed the fact that if I filled up here, I didn't have to go out on Forest Drive or elsewhere out of the neighboorhood. I also generally found the ladies at the counter here to be very friendly, and the new coffee machines (as at all CKs) made a quite decent cup.

UPDATE 12 November 2020: Adding The Pantry & Kangaroo Express to the post title.

UPDATE 18 November 2020 -- As mentioned in the comments, the gas tanks have been excavated as seen in these 17 November pix:

  2. Crazy, a gas station has been there since I was in high school and that was forever ago.

  3. Wow, I know this station has been there since I was a young child so over 35+ years I think.

  4. Gas pumps are gone.

    Can’t remember when the tanks were replaced.
    Could have been a factor in the closing.

  5. When Circle K at 7735 Broad River Road closed (which has a similar background to this one) the pumps were removed after closing and 2 years later the space still sits vacant...it was noted as a move that Circle K does in general on the Wells Fargo closing (3500 Forest Drive).

    Looking like no more gas here.

  7. I can't believe I didn't realize it was closed! I've ridden through that intersection several times and didn't even register. I used to go a lot back in the days when I smoked - it was my go-to place. But since I quit years ago, I can't remember the last time I went in.
