Automotive Care

Summer means more road trips! A Spring 2022 study found that roughly 80% of Americans planned to take a road trip in the summer – making road trips the most popular way to travel over the next few months. Of course a road trip wouldn’t be a road trip without stopping for gas, and maybe a few snacks too. But gas and snacks are just as important as automotive safety, especially when flat tires, fender benders and other mishaps often happen when you least expect them. C-stores are typically the only resource when out on the road, so whether customers are specifically searching for automotive care or they are in-store to make other purchases, help them prepare for their road trip with Lil’ Drug Store’s tire repair kit, tire gauges, tie-downs, duct tape and more. You can find these items in the Auto section of the Insider!

Bottled Water

It’s no secret that we need to drink more water in the summer. Hydration is vital to bodily function, and as temperatures increase, proper water intake becomes even more integral in regulating the body. As consumers move away from sugary beverages and instead seek out better-for-you options for on-the-go, water bottle sales have skyrocketed, particularly innovation and specialty waters that possess even greater health benefits. According to a survey conducted on behalf of the International Bottled Water Association by The Harris Poll, nine out of ten Americans want bottled water to be available wherever other drinks are sold. With the summer months finally here, convenience stores can cash in on the high demand for bottled water. Check out our bottled water and specialty water deals from Perfect Hydration, AC + ION, Poland Spring, Origin and Deer Park in the Beverage section of the Insider!
