As part of a National Association of Convenience Stores outreach program, freshman Congressman Bryan Steil, R-Wis., worked behind the count at Lou Perrine’s Gas & Grocery, 5145 Sheridan Road, for a short time Wednesday.
Steil took on the role to learn about the dynamics of operating a convenience store, meet with customers and engage with constituents.
Steil represents the state’s 1st Congressional District, which covers Kenosha County, Racine County and an extended portion of southeastern Wisconsin.
“I had a great time at Lou Perrine’s today," Steil said. "I have stopped by Lou Perrine’s for gas and a snack before, but it was fun to be on the other side and see all the work that goes on behind the scenes. Family-owned businesses like this are great for our community.
“Convenience stores are vital small businesses that provide essential services to time-starved customers with one-stop shopping, grab-and-go food service, a variety of merchandise and fast transactions,” Steil said.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to participate in the NACS in-store program and witness firsthand the many benefits convenience stores offer to the residents of Kenosha.”
