My sister, Robin, writes for a blog that is aptly named “Robin’s Resources“. It’s a sweet gig. She basically shops and then writes about her experiences in the shop. Let me give it a try:
Highland Park, IL
Sort of stinky, not well merchandised, dusty candy, very convenient.
Mike’s note: Not a big fan of Slurpees, I can do without the blue lips
Who you’ll see shopping here: Random people who don’t appear to be from the area
Their specialty: Snacks, beer and porn– what else is there?
What you should buy: A hot dog from the all-day hot dog roller
What you may not know but should:
- The 7-Eleven franchise is the largest i chain store in the US with almost 37,000 outlets
- July 11th is “7-11” day in the US, but in Australia 7-11 day is November 7th
- Smoking appears to be permitted
Well, I’m not sure I captured the essence of Robin’s Resources, you’ll have to visit there to make your own judgement…
