I adore our local Stewart’s Shop.
I can’t explain it. I don’t understand it. There’s just something about it.
It’s a chain convenience store for Pete’s sake. There’s one on nearly every corner in New York state. But I still love going in there.
I’m convinced our Stewart’s is the best. The one in Long Lake is a close second.
I love running in for milk when I don’t feel like driving 20 minutes to the grocery store.
And sometimes I simply crave a veggie sub (white bread, provolone and mustard, please), Stewart’s brand kettle cooked salt and pepper potato chips, and a soda for lunch. All to be consumed on our deck in the sunshine, of course.
Again, I can’t explain it. There’s just something about it.
It helps that the Stewart’s brand kettle cooked salt and pepper potato chips are the best potato chips in the entire world. It’s true. I dare you to try them and disagree.
I love stopping in to grab some trail mix or string cheese or Snickers bars to throw in our packs for a hike. And I REALLY love stopping in for a vanilla milkshake on our way back from a hike.
And as long as I’m talking about things I love about Stewart’s, I LOVE that they sell the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery’s 46’er Pale Ale.
All of the Stewart’s employees are so nice and helpful. And the customers are always an interesting mix of locals, vacationers, and hikers and climbers fueling up for their adventures.
It’s such a friendly spot in town. Makes me hope we run out of milk today.
