The Village Qwik Stop in Pigeon, Mich. is celebrating 25 years of filling gas tanks and its customers’ needs. Opened in 1982, owners Mike and Lorraine LePage bought and converted an old drive-through car wash after realizing the
convenience niche in the area had yet to be filled.
“In 1982, there wasn’t a convenience store in Pigeon and we thought it would be a fun business,” Mike LePage told the Huron Daily Tribune. “We’ve both enjoyed the business.”
Since the store’s opening, the LePage’s have expanded the gas station to include a sprawling c-store that offers groceries, breakfast sandwiches and movie rentals. In 1987, the store also added a Little Caesar’s Pizza to its offering.
The store, which has become a linchpin to the town and customers that is serves, is offering a raffle to celebrate its 25th year. The grand-prize winner will receive $300 worth of gasoline.
