WWW.CSNEWS.COM | NOVEMBER 2014 | Convenience Store News 31 Kangaroo Express saw an opportunity for its store [that was] scheduled to be rebuilt to not only serve the military community, but to embrace and show the company's appreciation for our troops and their fami- lies," according to the retailer. Since its opening, the store has seen significant increases in traffic. Of those that participated in a cus- tomer intercept survey, military personnel unanimously liked the military concept. Additionally, more than 70 percent of citizens also liked the military concept. T he Pantry Inc. considered two things when building its new store in Fayetteville: its support of the military, and location. The result was the first military-themed Kangaroo Express. The convenience store at 5642 Bragg Blvd. is located across from Fort Bragg. The outlet includes all the offerings Kangaroo Express has become known for: Bean Street Coffee, fresh sandwiches, an assortment of bakery options, hot dog grills and "Hot From the Oven" selections. It also includes a Subway restaurant with a drive- thru and seating for about 30 custom- ers. The Cary, N.C.-based retailer wove tributes to the U.S. military into the store. Six murals depict brave military men and women serving our country. The aptly named "Wash Rack" offers car wash services with automatic wash, foam, rinse and wax options. Customers can then grab a chilled beverage from the "Cold Canteen" walk-in. The mural selection and mil - itary-themed names were chosen through local input. A Wall of Honor in the store recognizes local com- munity members that are making a difference in the Fayetteville area and around the world. It also displays recognition from local military service organizations, such as the USO-NC and Fisher House Foundation, for Kangaroo Express' support through its annual Salute Our Troops campaign and throughout the year.
