Your local convenience store may be the place where you buy your cigarettes and snacks. To others, it’s a place to send Western Union money transfers to family overseas. Local stores have our backs when we’re in a pinch for groceries, or when we really need painkillers and we really don’t want to walk to the drugstore. Your neighbourhood convenience store is a vital part of its respective community, and this is an homage to them.
