strange things are afoot at the Circle K
(Mike Allen)

Do you know when the Mongols ruled China? You’ll now have to ask a Casey’s employee for the answer, as strange things are afoot at the Circle K. In the Oklahoma City metro at least, Circle K stores appear to have been changed, or are in the process of being converted, to Casey’s General Stores.

I admit, I’ve never set foot inside a Casey’s, so I can’t speak to their quality, but I’ve read something intriguing while perusing the internet. Apparently they have good pizza that is prepared fresh inside the stores? That is an automatic win in my book. I have been slacking on the “pizza beat” for some time now, but perhaps this is a candidate to be added to future rankings. I look forward to trying it.

Still, it’s a little sad to see an icon like Circle K go, at least from the immediate area. I think of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure literally every time I see their logo, which resulted in me having good feelings about the stores owing to the brand synergy. Perhaps it’s just nostalgia for a time long past, and this conversion is just another reminder that things change. “Whoa” indeed.
