Holiday Road Trip Tips
Check Your Vehicle
Everyone should be getting regular maintenance on their vehicle, however, when traveling in variable weather perhaps in other areas of the country, you must prepare for the unexpected. Carrying things like an ice scraper, a spare tire, jumper cables and a flashlight can be crucial to have when on a road trip. Even extra gas, food and water are good ideas if your road trip travels are taking you through remote areas.

Vaping an alternative to cigarette smoking
Smoking continues to be a major concern, affecting the health of a substantial proportion of the population. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates almost 18 out of every 100 adults aged 18 or older in the United States currently smoke cigarettes. That equates to an estimated 42.1 million people.
Smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease in the United States, annually contributing to roughly 500,000 deaths. Although smoking rates have been on the decline, public health officials believe there is still more to be done, including educating youth about the dangers of smoking.
All About Convenience
You see them in every checkout line, even on the countertop perhaps — tempting merchandise. A display rack of gum, select candy or mints, a mini cooler stocked with refreshing drinks … all of these items can entice a customer to make an impulse buy or remind them of something they want.
And during peak driving season, strategic displays are the perfect opportunity for customers to choose Creek Convenience Store Atmore (CCSA).
Point-of-sale items are nothing new. Most consumers know them when they see them. But setting up specific arrangements to attract customers to buy goes beyond making an extra sale. It’s all about providing convenience.
It's okay to 'wine' a bit
Sometimes, after a long day at work, you just want to unwind with a glass of wine and watch the sun set. Everyone has their own preference of wine tastes, but many don't know the origins behind the brand they drink or about the grapes that make up the wine.
Perdido Vineyards is a locally made Muscadine wine from Baldwin County that can be bought at Creek Convenience Store Atmore and Creek Travel Plaza. It is touted as Alabama's first farm winery. Owner Jim Eddins has been in business making wine since 1979.
CCSA appreciation event a success
With the holidays approaching, it was the perfect time for a party, so Creek Convenience Store Atmore (CCSA) threw a customer appreciation bash to honor its loyal patrons.
On a bright, brisk Friday, Nov. 13, 2015, about 200 customers showed up for the festivities at CCSA to enjoy free chili cheese hot dogs and drinks, win prizes and an opportunity to see the NASCAR No. 22 Shell race car driven by NASCAR driver Joey Logano.

But it's the behind-the-scenes work that makes an average convenience store become a great store — one that customers want to visit time and time again.
“Believe it or not, there is a lot of paperwork involved in running a convenience store and gas station,” Creek Convenience Store Atmore General Manager Susie McCann said. “I begin every day with paperwork and end most days with it as well.”
