Convenience Costs More

Listen to Audio (right click to save)

We have some friends who own one of those convenience stores. The ones you can go to any time of the night or day; the ones that are open on the days when you can't get into anybody else's store. We've all been there, right? We've all needed them at sometime. And these people work very long hours to make a living, but we do tease them. See, I know that will come as a surprise that I tease my friends. I know you can't imagine that, but we tease them a lot about the prices in their store. Yea, we kid them about $5 half gallons of milk, and $10 boxes of cookies, and $2 candy bars.

Of course it's not really that bad, but you do pay noticeably more at their store. That's the profit factor in being open at times and on days when other stores are closed. Now our friends, the store owners, are kind of quick to defend those prices. They give me a very simple fact of life. They just look me in the eye and they say, "Ron, convenience costs more." They're right! They're very right.
