The Teleportation of QuikTrip

By what manner of wizardry did the QuikTrip move several blocks west from its location at Gravois and Siebert? It was before my time, but another Afftonian says that they fought very hard to get the "wedge" corner at Gravois & Siebert. Perhaps they wanted to move closer to Phil's Bar-B-Q, and who could blame them?! My source tells me that the old location ended up being a bad layout and when the new parcel became available they jumped at the chance to get more space. As you can see in the second photo, the new layout is nice and spacious such as you normally see at their other locations.


I'm happy to report that they have been good corporate neighbors and dug up their storage tanks and filled in the holes in the ground. The parcel is now for sale.

Mr. Mayor, I believe another blogger of repute is trying to engage you in a discussion of this Quik Trip: http://www.urbanreviewstl.com/archives/000623.php. He may not be an Affton constituent, but would you care to engage? Doesn't STL need more of this type of cross-municipal engagement?
