Windham – A little after 2:00 pm Monday, when residents and community leaders began to gather outside the new Circle K Gas Station and Store in Windham anticipating the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the store. Store Manager A.J. Weiss was given the honor to cut the ribbon and declaring the store open for business. Once the ribbon was cut, residents flocked into the store to be the first customers to view the new facility. Police Chief Gene Fixler was the first one to test drive the hotdogs. He stated “The dogs are great and this was a wonderful place for the community.” It wasn’t too long after that Circle K saw its first customer at the fuel pumps. It is a great day in Windham and everyone was excited for A.J as he débuted his new store.
A.J. stated that it took five years of negotiating to arrive at the point we’re at today. Being persistent and patient had paid off. The new Circle K features prepay gas pumps, beer cave, more varieties of polar pops, more coffees and cappuccinos, milk shakes, frostees, smoothies, hot sandwiches — including breakfast sandwiches — donuts and more. They also have public restrooms. The store will be open 24/7 and one will also be able to pump gas, diesel or kerosene 24/7 as well. The new store is located near the intersection of Maple Grove Road and E. Center Streets in Windham Village.
